Neck and Back Pain
Joint Dysfunction Pain and Treatment
Simultaneous neck and back pain can occur when one of the joints in the spine or limbs loses its normal joint play (resiliency and shock absorption). It typically is detected through motion palpation — a procedure in which the doctor gently moves the joint in different directions and assesses its joint play. When a joint develops dysfunction, its normal range of movement may be affected and it can become painful. In addition, joint dysfunction can lead to a muscle imbalance and muscle pain in a vicious cycle:
The loss of joint play can cause abnormal signals to the nervous system (there are an abundance of nerve receptors in the joint). The muscles related to that joint can subsequently become tense or, conversely, under-active. The resulting muscle imbalance can place increased stress on the joint, aggravating the joint dysfunction that already exists.
Any joint of the spine, including the Sacroiliac Joints, can cause mechanical pain. Joints are designed to move and when they do not, pain and degeneration occurs. Conservative treatment is designed at maximizing motion, improving flexibility and finally maximizing muscular coordination, endurance and strength.

Neck and Back Pain
In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, the special exercises and stretches Dr. Kline will recommend, are designed to help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health. Call Dr. Kline today.
Spinal & Postural Screenings
Although our primary goal is to get you to full recovery, we also want to prevent another injury. Posture and spinal screenings by Dr. Kline will enable him to provide the appropriate treatment.
