If you are dealing with any pain in your neck or back, we are here to help. Call us for a free consultation, and let’s talk about what’s going on and what needs to happen to get you back to your life.

When a patient comes in and says, “my neck hurts” or “my lower back is stiff” we’ll look at the entire spinal column, as well as the hips and the sacral iliac joint. What happens at the top affects the bottom, and vice versa! Nothing in the body happens in isolation.

Did you know there are 120 muscles around the spinal cord, and more than 100 joints that make up the spine itself? The basic components of the spinal column are the vertebrae (bone), discs (shock absorbers), and facets (joints on the side of the spinal column).

The muscles around the spine perform complicated movements, including helping you breathe. Did you know that when you take a deep breath, even your tailbone moves? You can imagine how any movement in the body can lead to healing or harm in other parts.
