Common Causes of Neck Pain
The neck is made up of seven vertebrae. While these bones help support our heads, you may also experience neck pain if any of those vertebrae are misaligned. Causes of neck pain may include:
Posture is an issue for many adults. When you keep your neck hunched or bent over for long periods, it can strain your neck muscles, leading to lasting pain. In addition, headaches often accompany neck pain caused by bad posture.
During periods of high stress, we instinctively contract our muscles to protect our bodies from injury. However, carrying muscle tension can lead to stiffness and pain, especially in the upper and lower back. Many people struggling with chronic stress experience neck pain.
The neck is a complex system that is injured in many ways. Whiplash, caused when the head moves suddenly, is the most common form of neck injury and cause of neck pain. While whiplash often occurs after auto accidents, it can also be caused by sports injuries or falls.
How Our Chiropractor Can Help
The neck region is known as the cervical spine. Since chiropractors specialize in spinal adjustments, a chiropractor can examine your neck and make gentle adjustments that will provide immediate pain relief. Our chiropractor can also identify the source of your pain and find an appropriate treatment.
While there are plenty of ways to manage pain in the short term, a chiropractor can help you treat your pain long-term. You can expect an immediate improvement in your neck after your first session with a chiropractor, but you will also see more lasting benefits as time goes on.
