Relief for Chronic Neck Pain

Chronic neck pain is pain, stiffness and soreness in the neck, perhaps with decreased mobility, that lasts more than several weeks. The pain can be mild or severe; what makes it “chronic” is that it persists. The traditional medical response to neck pain is to recommend pain relievers, but drugs simply mask the symptoms – and taking them for an indefinite period can do more harm than good. If there was an approach that addressed your chronic neck pain causes at the source and offered safe, natural neck pain relief, would you be interested? Well, then – read on!

Causes of Neck Pain

Typically neck pain is not caused by anything serious – stress of one kind or another is the usual suspect. Emotional stress (like worrying about your kids or money or suffering grief or depression) can cause us to clench our neck muscles without even realizing it, physical stress (like maintaining unhealthy postures or sleeping on your stomach) can also create tension in the neck muscles, and chemical stress (inhaling or ingesting toxins like tobacco, smog, unhealthy foods, preservatives or even medications) can affect muscle tone and the nerves of the neck. When the neck muscles contract, they can apply pressure to the bones of the neck, causing slight deviations in positioning which can then interfere with the nervous system, resulting in pain, a stiff neck and the inability to turn your head. If the stress situation continues, the deviations become more pronounced and the pain persists, becoming chronic.

  • Herniated (bulging) cervical disc
  • Malpositioned facet joint (joint of the neck)
  • Disc degeneration in the cervical spine
  • Arthritic bone spurs

In each of these situations, discs or neck joints encroach into areas normally reserved for nerves, irritating or inflaming the nerves and creating neck pain.

Traditional Chronic Neck Pain Treatment

The traditional medical approach to treating chronic neck pain is “pain management” – meaning you have to live with the pain and simply hope to keep it tolerable with drugs. Of course, the drugs have many negative side effects and they don’t do anything to correct the underlying causes of your neck pain. Fortunately, there is another solution – and it’s natural and 100% drug-free!
