Cervicalgia is simply another description for "neck pain". Cervicalgia
is often produced by sustained contraction of the muscles of the neck
or fixation of the joints in your neck. The pain may be located in
several different regions of the neck including the lateral neck, the
base of the skull, the shoulders, or the junction between the neck in
the upper back. This condition
can be the result of trauma, postural strain, myofascial trigger points,
TMJ syndrome, abnormal sleeping position, or tension.
Chiropractic care is very effective in the treatment of this condition. In
addition, other additional treatment considerations may include
electro-therapy to reduce associated muscle spasm and pain,
rehabilitative stretching and strengthening exercises, acupuncture, and
massage therapy. We can discuss these other treatment options to design the best program to most effectively treat your condition.
