As the main portal between head and body, the neck is subject to the weight and position of the head above and the curvature of the spine below. Spending hours at a desk, often hunched over in front of the computer in the forward head and shoulder posture destabilizes your entire support structure.
Given long enough, this repetitive trauma will contribute to degenerative problems in the neck, but more likely you will go through an agonizingly long period of muscle strain. That stiff neck is not normal and it's time we start doing something about it.
Our techniques involve gentle adjustment of the spine to release pressure from nerves. Furthermore, we provide spinal traction that targets tight muscles and helps to elongate them, creating space for the blood to flow in to the aid of the muscles in your stiff neck! Once we have established a lessening of the stiffness and a trajectory of healing, we show you simple exercises and stretches that can be employed throughout the work day to keep those muscles from returning to that stiff state! To create a coordinated plan for healing your stiff neck, give our office a call in Milpitas to schedule an appointment today.
