Your cervical spine surrounds your brain stem connection to your spinal cord. It is an area rich in blood vessels and other soft tissue, such as ligament and tendons. Neck pain is slightly less common than back pain, but no less important or treatable.

Common causes of neck pain include, but are not limited to:

  • Cervical subluxations
  • Cervical herniated disc.
  • Cervical stenosis, which is caused by a herniated disc or degenerative joint, can cause pain to radiate down the arm, and lead to shooting pain and coordination problems in the arms and hands.
  • Muscle strain degeneration of the facet joint cartilage.

A sprain of the muscles, ligaments, or tendons in the neck area usually causes acute neck pain. Vehicular accidents, repeated carrying of heavy items (such as luggage), or awkward sleeping positions are often the culprits. Most minor ligament or tendon injuries in the neck will subside with proper chiropractic care.

One common symptom of chronic neck pain is an ache that radiates down the arm, sometimes into the hands and fingers, accompanied by numbness or tingling. Foraminal stenosis, a condition caused by degenerative changes in the neck joints, involves a herniated disc or a pinched nerve. This in turn causes chronic neck pain.

Whether it is acute or chronic neck pain the chiropractic profession has enabled hundreds of thousands of sufferers to gain relief by correcting the causes.  Neck pain is often caused by a spinal subluxation contributing to the disc, muscle and ligamentous instability. Chiropractors are excellent at correcting spinal subluxations that cause neck pain, in fact Doctors of Chiropractic are the only doctors trained in diagnosing and treating spinal subluxation complexes.  By adjusting these subluxations, chiropractors reduce the irritation on neck nerves, muscles, discs, ligaments an tendons, enabling the body to begin to heal properly and regain a balanced pain free structure.
