What Causes Neck Pain?
The neck, much like the back, is composed of bones, joints, discs, ligaments, nerves and muscles. Pain can stem from any one of these structures. You can sprain ligaments, strain muscles, rupture discs and irritate joints or nerves. Age is also a significant contributing factor to neck pain. Between the everyday normal wear and tear and injuries sustained over the course of a lifetime, at least 30% of people between the ages of 30-50 will already have some degree of disc degeneration.
Restoring Neck Function and Relieving Neck Pain
Millions of people suffer daily from neck and shoulder pain. Some have even considered or have opted for surgery and others have turned to a daily regimen of pills in search of pain relief.
There is an alternative to drugs and surgery.
In private practice for 34+ years, we have developed a combination of diagnostics and treatments that get to the root cause of neck pain. To effectively treat neck pain you must treat the source of the pain and not the symptoms. We do not use medications to mask your pain or perform risky, invasive surgeries. Our focus is on alternative treatments that are safe and effective and have used them to treat and heal thousands of patients for decades.
Once we have diagnosed what the cause of the pain is we develop a tailor-made, personalized treatment program that best treats your condition. We take a personalized approach to healing and do not apply “cookie cutter” methods because no two patients are the same.

A Patient’s Experience
“My pain was in the neck, head, shoulders, and my face nerves. I had the pain daily and really bad for 2 months. I was not able to sleep for more than 2 hours at a time, because the pain would wake me up. I would cry every morning for 1 to 2 hours before I could get dressed and even try to start my day. I tried manual manipulation from other chiropractors that did not work. I was taking Vicodin, muscle relaxers, Motrin and none of it was working. After treatment at Advanced Health Center, I can turn my neck to the right and left. I can look up and down and I can sleep the whole night without a neck brace on. I am so glad that I was able to get relief! I love and trust everyone at Advanced Health Center.”
