Neck pain affects us all at some time. We often use OTC pain relievers to get us through the episode. Neck pain can be much deeper than a brief episode of muscle tension. Arthritis, disc degeneration/bulge, nerve impingement, heart and gallbladder disease are just a few of the conditions that can produce neck pain. Adjusting the neck and upper back with attention to the acupuncture meridians running through the neck will help or resolve most neck issues. Seldom is there a deeper need for surgery. Dr. Ehle can find ways to help your neck problem no matter how sensitive you are about having your neck worked on. He can use other techniques such as massage therapy, acupuncture, cold laser therapy, electrical muscle stimulation, natural muscle relaxers and light instrument adjusting techniques such as the Activator to find you relief from neck pain and spasms.
