Understanding the Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain can stem from various factors, some arising from daily activities and others due to underlying conditions. Here are some of the most common causes of neck pain:

•             Poor posture: Slouching while sitting, standing, or sleeping can strain the neck muscles and lead to pain.

•             Text neck: The constant downward tilt of the head when using electronic devices puts excessive stress on the neck and upper back.

•             Muscle strains: Overexerting the neck muscles during exercise, lifting heavy objects, or repetitive motions can cause strains.

•             Whiplash: This common car accident injury damages neck muscles, ligaments, and discs, resulting in pain and reduced flexibility.

•             Arthritis: Degenerative joint disease in the cervical spine can cause pain, stiffness, and inflammation.

How Chiropractic Care Can Help

Fortunately, our chiropractors are adept at treating injuries and conditions involving the back and neck. We will perform a physical exam to determine the underlying cause of your neck pain and create a customized treatment plan to help you feel like yourself again. This treatment plan may include one or more of the following:

•             Chiropractic adjustments: Specific manipulations of the cervical vertebrae can improve mobility and alleviate nerve compression.

•             Soft tissue therapy: Techniques like massage and stretching help relax muscles and reduce pain.

•             Physical therapy: Our physical therapist will develop a personalized exercise program to improve strength, flexibility, and posture.

•             Acupuncture: This traditional Chinese medicine practice inserts thin needles at specific meridian points to stimulate the body’s natural healing response.

•             Laser therapy: Low-level laser therapy can reduce inflammation and promote tissue healing.
