Neck pain is a common problem, and one that will affect most people at some point in life. Just how common is this health issue? It seems to be catching up to back pain. One in ten persons complains of neck pain and one in twenty describes the pain as debilitating. What causes this condition to occur and what can be done about it?

Pinpointing the source of neck pain presents, at times, a challenge. The intricacy of this region of the body makes discerning the cause difficult. Structures such as the skull, bones, and muscles all work together and house nerves, veins, and arteries. Weight plays a big role in this too. A human head is ten to twelve pounds. Your neck supports that weight. Imagine the balance and control needed within the neck's structure to move, balance, and support the head. If anything is even slightly thrown off, neck pain can follow.

Of course, the vertebrae provide that main pillar on which the entire structure rests. These important bones must be in the correct position. For those who are suffering from neck pain – particularly in cases where it is chronic – the upper cervical part of the spine should be examined, with focus on the C1 vertebra.

What is a relief option for neck pain? Dr. Christopher Perkins of Farmington, Michigan is the expert to seek out for relief. He is an upper cervical chiropractor. As such, he is experienced in isolating the cause of the neck pain and correcting the issue through adjusting the C1 vertebra. Sometimes, relief can come in just one exact adjustment of this one bone. Advanced methods, that have proven research to back their effectiveness, are employed by Dr. Perkins to provide relief for neck pain sufferers.
