Neck Pain Q & A

Why is neck pain so common?

When you think about the many functions your neck performs every day, the question becomes, “Why isn’t neck pain more common?” Your neck houses your cervical spine, the upper portion of your spine that plays a critical role in head mobility. 

Your neck also helps support the weight of your head, which is in nearly constant motion throughout each day. This relatively small area of your body contains a network of bones, ligaments, muscles, tendons, blood vessels, nerves, and more. Your spinal cord also runs through your neck to connect your brain to the rest of your nervous system. 

Some of the common causes of neck pain include:

  • Repetitive stress
  • Poor posture
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Arthritis
  • Herniated disc
  • Pinched nerve
  • Strain from high levels of stress

Traumatic injuries and sports injuries are also common sources of neck pain in both children and adults. Workplace injuries are yet another way that your neck can sustain damage. 

What chiropractic treatments can help with neck pain?

When many people envision chiropractic care, they think about the rapid, controlled adjustments often known as “cracking.” This approach is sometimes used to correct spinal misalignment, a common source of neck pain. 

However, a chiropractor can help improve or eliminate neck pain in many other ways. Soft tissue manipulation is an example and involves using hands-on techniques to relax the muscles in your neck and improve circulation. 

What can I do to reduce my risk of future neck pain?

Physiotherapy helps by teaching you how to move through targeted exercises that relieve pressure on your neck and improve muscle strength. This option can both reduce existing pain and lower your risk of developing future neck discomfort. 

Your chiropractor can also help you assess your habits at home and work to look for sources of neck pain. Making minor adjustments like raising the height of your computer screen or changing how you hold your phone can do wonders to reduce recurring neck pain. 

Of course, if you enjoy athletic activities that carry a high risk of neck pain, wearing a helmet or other protective gear can dramatically reduce your risk levels.
