Neck pain has been burdening the human race for centuries. It can vary from occasional discomfort to chronic and severe pain and despite the commonality of it; little progress has been made in pin-pointing the exact causes and remedies.
Even today, it can be extremely tricky to diagnose and even harder to get rid of. The primary problem with neck pain is misdiagnosis. If you do visit a doctor you will likely be pigeon-holed into another case of "chronic neck pain," a very broad and not easily remedied diagnosis.

When it's all heavy going

FOR MANY of us, chiropractic care is synonymous with neck-cracking antics we would rather avoid.
We imagine that if we are already in terrible pain with a back injury or neck strain, the last thing in the world we would want to do is place any one of our seven, precious cervical vertebrae in the hands of such a therapy.
Beam of light gives ray of hope for those in pain
by Sara Diamond

Laser treatment has been around for several decades, but just recently became more mainstream. This new treatment, which is approved by the FDA, is used to treat musculoskeletal injuries, chronic and degenerative conditions and wounds.
Miguel Cruz, D.C., a chiropractor in Burnsville, North Carolina says the light is absorbed by micro-molecules in the skin and initiates a powerful reaction skin. It also causes the body to produce endorphins, which inhibit the sensation of pain, and cortisol, which helps the body combat stress associated with injury or disease.
Studies suggest chiropractic care can help dyslexia
September 3, 2008
Studies suggest chiropractic care can help dyslexia, specific exercises appear to "train" the cerebellum to respond normally to information.
There are several case studies that show the benefit of chiropractic care in treating children with dyslexia. The chiropractic approach is based on two models. The first is the vertebral subluxation/hemisphericity, which hypothesized to be a potential consequence of central nervous system dysfunction. The second model is vertebral subluxation/neurologic disorganization. This model is based on a theory that children with dyslexia and learning disabilities have a functional disturbance to the appropriate organization of higher centers of the central nervous system.
Chiropractic: As Individual as a Handshake
by Charles Masarsky, DC
June 12, 2008
Well-meaning but misinformed friends, relatives and even health professionals often dissuade parents from placing their children under chiropractic care.
This often is based on the misperception that a chiropractic adjustment is "too rough," and that a young child's spine should not be "subjected" to it. In reality, a chiropractic adjustment has much in common with a handshake.
