Neck Misalignment Treatment from our
Midtown New York Chiropractor
When you have pain in your neck or upper back, it can be due to a problem with the way your upper spine is aligned. Misalignments in this part of your body can cause pain, dizziness and other symptoms that prevent you from doing regular tasks and activities. Our chiropractic doctor in NYC offers treatment for neck misalignment to ease symptoms.
Causes of Neck Misalignment
Injuries or other damage to the vertebrae, or bones, and discs in your upper spine can lead to misalignments. When you have a neck misalignment, it means that these parts of your upper spine are not correctly lined up, which can cause inflammation and make it hard for your body to heal. You can end up with misalignments due to acute injuries, wear and tear or underlying conditions that weaken your spine, such as osteoarthritis. Sprains and strains that affect the soft tissue in the upper part of your spine can also cause alignment problems.

Physical Therapy for Neck Misalignment
Physical therapy can also help improve neck misalignment symptoms. This type of treatment, which we offer at NuView Health Medical, makes your upper spine muscles stronger and improves your range of motion. Physical therapy exercises are sometimes used along with chiropractic adjustments to enhance pain relief and reduce the risk of having alignment problems occur again.
