What causes neck pain?
While this may seem like a question with a very straightforward answer, the truth lies in the fact that the human neck is a complicated structure that can hold a variety of innate issues. Many people find themselves visiting a Chiropractic office for the first time because of a “stiff neck” (pain and a reduced range of motion of the neck and supporting spinal muscles), and usually attribute this to “sleeping funny.” However, the stresses of daily life, working in an environment that supports poor posture (such as computer work or child rearing), and the heavy workload of carrying around a skull can irritate neck muscles to the edge of their threshold. Most people find themselves in pain after a small incident (like sleeping at an odd angle or doing a double-take) due to the straw-that-broke-the-camel’s-back effect of over stressed muscles pulling bones out of place and pinching nerves. Of course, there is always the more direct approach to neck pain, such as a traumatic fall or auto accident, in which case the neck muscles experience a sudden onset of the same symptoms. Herniated discs, Degenerative disc disease, Cervical spondylosis are the result of damage to the neck.
