Causes of Neck Pain

Comprising seven vertebrae as well as multiple muscles, ligaments and other structures, the neck plays a vital role in our daily movements, yet neck pain is a widespread issue that affects almost everyone.

Neck pain can stem from multiple possible causes. It is essential to identify the specific reason so that pain management support and tailored care can be provided – ignoring the pain may lead to the condition worsening.

Factors that could result in neck pain may include the following:

  • Poor Posture: Everyday activities like working on your computer and excessive smartphone use can strain your neck muscles.
  • Whiplash: Sudden head jerking, often due to car accidents or similar incidents, can result in neck pain.
  • Sporting Injuries and Trauma: Trauma to the neck during sports activities can cause significant discomfort.
  • Health Conditions: Arthritis, nerve compression, and infections can contribute to neck discomfort.
  • Stress and Tension: Emotional stress often manifests as strain or tension in the neck, adding to your pain.
  • Poor Sleeping Position: Inadequate sleep positions may lead to neck pain.
  • Skeletal Degeneration: Wear and tear on discs and vertebrae can contribute to persistent neck issues.
  • Lack of Normal Spinal Curvature: Deviations from the natural curvature of the spine may result in neck pain.
  • Torticollis:A condition where the head is tilted to one side due to muscle spasms, causing neck pain.

• Pain under the skull, as well as the front and back of the neck
• Pain and tightness in the shoulders

Other symptoms may be:

• Headaches and migraines
• Numbness/tingling/burning sensation in the shoulder, down the arm,      and the forearm, hand and fingers
• Torticollis, characterised by a mild to severe head tilt and pain
• Balance issues

If you find yourself nodding along with these symptoms, it may be time to take action. Don’t endure the discomfort. Whether it’s severe pain, numbness, or persistent discomfort, we’re here to provide personalised neck pain treatment and get you back to the activities you love.

How We Use Chiropractic Care to Treat Neck Pain

At Be Better Chiropractic, our diagnostic process for neck pain involves a thorough exploration through neurological, orthopedic, and spinal functional examinations. This can include reflexes, range of spinal motion, and consideration of posture.

If, during these evaluations, your neck pain chiropractor determines that chiropractic intervention may address your concerns – and if it involves neck joint components – then we may recommend further investigations, such as X-rays or additional diagnostic imaging. These insights guide us in tailoring an effective plan of action for your neck pain treatment.

Once we’ve gathered the appropriate information, we provide you with recommendations which may involve the following:
