The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. The cervical spine supports the full weight of your head which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction. The neck produces a combination of flexibility and stability.
The neck’s susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.
Dr. John’s tools for addressing neck issues are generally adjustments, exercises, or traction. These tools work to reduce symptoms, improve the mobility, restore range of motion, create stability, and improve forward head posture.
