If you seek chiropractic care in Phoenix for neck injury treatment, such as treatment of a whiplash injury, then it can help to understand the anatomy of your cervical spine. Your chiropractor can explain how he or she plans to make adjustments to your cervical spine to reduce your symptoms. This video will also help you understand more about this region of your spine.
The cervical spine is the portion that runs through your neck. It supports your head and allows you to turn it from side to side. Because it supports a great deal of weight, the cervical spine is vulnerable to injuries, particularly those that cause painful pressure on the nerves that surround the spine. Through chiropractic adjustments, your chiropractor can alleviate that pressure so that your neck pain subsides.
