Understanding the Roots of Neck Pain
Neck pain can spring from chronic conditions like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Osteoarthritis, or Degenerative Disc Disease, which causes age-related deterioration of spinal discs in the neck. Other conditions that could lead to neck pain include Fibromyalgia, Whiplash and Spinal stenosis.
While neck pain from chronic conditions is often unavoidable, chiropractic care can help provide significant relief. Chiropractic treatment might also prove effective against neck pain induced by daily activities, injuries, or avoidable habits. Injuries such as herniated discs, muscle strains, trauma, whiplash, or emotional stress can contribute to neck pain. Other factors like cradling your phone between your shoulder and neck, poor posture, incorrect sleeping positions, or uneven weight distribution can also spark pain.
