Neck pain can result from a host of issues and disorders. We can write a whole book on the subject. But, based on our collective experiences, we adamantly believe that the vast majority of neck pain patients are those that have soft tissue disorders. Soft tissue disorders include problems such as disc bulges, disc herniations, disc extrusions, collectively referred to as a “Slip Disc.” But soft tissue disorders can also include problems with muscles, ligaments, tendons and joint capsules of the neck.

Our Targetted Treatment for Neck Stiffness, Discomfort or Pain Will Help Your Recovery
Neck pain and slip disc are all too common. Perhaps, it is all due to our increased dependencies on our handheld devices. Today, young and the elderly spend far too much time on cell phones and pads. In short, we spend countless hours with our heads and necks in flexed positions. Well, prolonged downward flexion of the head and neck can impact your spinal joints spinal discs and of course the soft tissues (muscles and ligaments) of the neck. Excessive and prolonged postures that put your neck in a flexed position can even cause nerve damage. Muscle and ligament weakness impact other more sensitive structures, including your spinal nerves and spinal cord.
The most common soft tissue disease (disorder) that we have noticed is one where the spinal muscles have atrophied. Weakness in muscles and ligaments is the number one reason why many people develop a slipped disc. In fact, the spinal disc is a ligament. So, when there are problems with the soft tissues, it can easily lead to issues within the disc.
To avoid problems with your neck, you must maintain proper posture during sleep or work. In addition to good posture, muscle and ligament strength are key. An ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure. The key to avoidance of complications such as slip disc, neck surgery, paralysis or worse, is muscle and ligament well being. The best way to avoid unnecessary surgical procedures on your neck is to prevent neck pain altogether.
How to Avoid Neck and Back Pain?
Avoiding neck pain and neck problems are not too difficult. For starters, mind your posture. If you happen to work at a computer, make sure the monitor is at an appropriate height for you. Furthermore, avoid prolonged positions that require you to have your head and neck in either flexion or extension. Once you have accomplished these tasks, improve the strength and mobility of your neck. Maintain a healthy muscle, and soft tissue tone is important.
