Neck Pain, Neck Ache, Headache, Headaches, Migraine, Migraines, Neck Injury, Neck Trauma, TMJ, Neck Alignment, text neck, texting It seems inevitable that at some point, everyone experiences neck pain.  You may have slept funny, been in a fender bender, or sustained an injury during a friendly game of basketball in the driveway.  Most of the time, neck pain dissipates within a few days, but for folks whose pain lingers and becomes chronic, it can make even the most simple tasks, like backing your car out of the driveway, challenging.

As more and more people realize that medications such as painkillers and anti-inflammatories provide only temporary relief and can have undesired side effects, they are looking for more natural solutions to their neck pain.  Many common foods in our diet can help to reduce inflammation and potentially ease some of your neck pain:

  • Ginger – can reduce inflammation in the intestines
  • Turmeric – may work to reduce the presence of a protein that triggers the inflammation process
  • Garlic – has been shown to work like an NSAID pain medication by shutting off the pathways that lead to inflammation
  • Berries – high in antioxidants, berries can help protect against inflammation


While incorporating more of these foods into your diet may help your neck pain symptoms, they will not get to the root cause of your issue.  Drs. Todd and Christi Osborne specialize in locating the underlying spinal cause of their patients’ neck pain.  The Osbornes are upper cervical chiropractors, and they focus on maintaining normal head-neck alignment.  When the top bones in the neck shift out of position, this causes compensations and pain throughout the neck and rest of the spine.  If it is determined that a specific misalignment of the atlas vertebra is the underlying cause of your neck pain, Drs. Osborne are able to correct it at the cause so you can get back to enjoying life pain-free.
