Neck pain, properly called cervicalgia, like back pain, affects about 10% of the adult population, at any given time, but is only about half as common as low back pain in the workplace, with less than half the working population suffering symptoms. However, we all suffer from neck pain at various times in our lives, from the "crick" we wake up with for no apparent reason, to the more severe symptoms of whiplash, associated with a motor vehicle crash or something similar.
Unfortunately there is always a trade off with flexibility vs. stability. The flexibility of the neck, which we rely on to function in our daily lives, comes at the cost of stability. This means we are more susceptible to the everyday events that eventually wear on the joints of our cervical spine, the neck. We have the equivalent of a 10-12 lbs. bowling ball on a spring that can get knocked around pretty hard sometimes, resulting in wear and tear to these joints, if not outright traumatic injury.
I have just recently moved to San Antonio and was in need of a Chiropractor. When I found Dr. Lewis, I found more than that. First, after many years of going to some very good chiropractors, I found the best one I have ever gone to regardless of location and I have lived in many states and cities; second, I have found someone that looks farther than just an adjustment and is concerned about my holistic wellness. Very few health care professionals provide the level of care that I receive when I see Dr. Lewis. She is helpful, caring, compassionate while being I true professional. I couldn't have be more blessed
