Home Remedies to Reduce Neck Pain

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Thu, Sep 19, 2013 @ 01:38 PM

For every inch your head moves forward of your upper back the strain on your neck increases exponentially! Thus, it is essential to try and maintain a more erect posture when working at a desk, driving a car, or performing arm activities (such as carrying things). Your body's musculature serves two functions – to produce movement and to control or guide that movement. The large, superficial muscles produce movement and are usually very active and easy to train. The deeper muscles that guide movements are important for preventing injury and they often become weak when you are in pain and thus require specific therapeutic exercises to activate and train them.

Pain From Spinal Stenosis in the Neck - Symptoms

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Mon, Jan 28, 2013 @ 12:15 PM

A common cause of neck pain, especially in older patients, is cervical stenosis or stenosis in the neck. Stenosis in the neck can be very painful and can affect you ability to do everyday activities. This pain is caused by the narrowing of the spinal canal in the neck and upper part of the spine putting pressure on the spinal cord. Most of the time it can be caused by degenerative changes in the spine, like a bulging disc or herniated disc. Most cervical stenosis in patients over the age of 50 years old is a result of aging and wear and tear of the spine. There are also many cases of cervical stenosis where the patient has a history of injury to the neck. The injury could happen months or years before you even see stenosis symptoms.
