Your neck has a tough job. It has to hold up the weight of your head every day for a lifetime.

Inflammation is like a check engine light for your body. It tells you something isn’t quite right, and you should pay attention. The first step in discovering the cause of the problem is determining whether you have acute or chronic inflammation. Acute inflammation is short-term and critical in healing and injury repair.
