These hot summer days make patients prone to a condition known as torticolis or wry neck syndrome. The patient wakes up of a morning with severe neck pain. Often they cannot turn their head. It is caused by sleeping in one uncomfortable or unnatural position for to long. It can be made worse by sleeping with a fan or cool air blowing on the patient.
Treatment is easy with chiropractic care. Spinal manipulation frees up the subluxated or fixed vertebrae, providing quick relief from the pain.
