Stiff Neck

Stiff Neck Defined

As an Arlington Heights Chiropractor, Stiff Neck Pain can come from any of a number of sources. But in nearly every instance we see a “subluxation”, or misalignment of the vertebrae in your neck or back, is the cause. When bones of your Spine are not in the correct alignment, muscles are activated to protect your body from further injury. They do this by becoming “stiff” or in technical terms, becoming a myospasm (muscle spasm). This allows your body to inhibit movement of the misaligned vertebrae. It does this to protect you from further injury. A “stiff neck” is never without cause or reason. There is always an underlying misalignment issue that must be addressed and corrected. Your Arlington Heights Chiropractor Dr. Kevin O’Hara does just that. He fixes the problem. Remember, a “stiff neck” will always escalate into a more serious problem like arm or shoulder pain, numbness in the arm or hands and it is easier to fix it before it becomes acute. Emergency appointments are available at O’Hara Family Chiropractic. Remember, "We’ve got your back"!

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "Dr. Kevin and his staff are great. My wife called a couple local chiropractors trying to get some information regarding what our insurance covered and the Office staff at O'Hara were the most helpful and worked hard to help answer our questions. Dr. Kevin is beyond great his "bedside" manner is excellent he makes you feel like you have known him for years. I will recommend his practice to anyone I know that is looking for a chiropractor."
