Neck Pain Relief
Neck pain is a condition that hits people both young and old. Around 25% of all Americans experience severe neck pain at one point or another. Most commonly, it seems to affect those within the working ages of 25 to 65 and has been linked to poor posture and alignment of the spine—often attributed to prolonged computer use.
Whatever the specific reason, misalignments in the neck’s bones can result in various issues ranging from pinched nerves, hand numbness, weak grip, and other conditions. The network of nerves, bone, and muscle can get very complicated, so if you find yourself suffering from even minor neck pain, it could be a sign of more severe problems that need to be addressed before they worsen.
