Causes of Neck Pain

The neck is part of the spine. The vertebra of the spine extends all the way up into the neck. This intricate system of the vertebra, cushioning discs, muscles, and tendons is vulnerable to injury and overuse. When an injury in this area occurs, it can cause pain and inflammation. This pain can be localized to the neck area only or it can radiate out into other parts of the body, including the shoulders, arms, or back. 

One of the most common causes of neck pain is strained muscles. Because the muscles of the neck support the weight of the head all day long, these muscles can become strained and overworked. Strained muscles can be a result of an accident or injury as well. 

Another common cause of neck pain can be a bulging or herniated disc in the cervical spine. The cervical spine is the uppermost part of the spine. The discs between each vertebra are designed to act as a cushion in between each disc. Whether through wear and tear or a trauma, these discs can herniate, leading to pain and dysfunction. 

Can a Chiropractor Help?

People often visit a traditional doctor for neck pain issues. Unfortunately, traditional medicine often only attempts to treat the symptoms of neck pain with harsh pain medications. This is not a good long-term solution. A chiropractor will attempt to get to the root of your pain issues. When the root of the pain issue is uncovered, a treatment plan can then be developed to help the body heal. 

Spinal adjustment is often used as a good foundational treatment. Spinal adjustment will bring the spine back into healthy alignment. This can often resolve many neck pain issues. Other forms of treatment include spinal decompression, massage therapy, hot/cold therapy, and laser therapy.
