We Help Neck Pain
Many spine problems can improve without anyone’s help or with non-surgical treatment. But there are some problems and symptoms which may represent emergencies, and some spine conditions will only worsen when left untreated.
Chronic and acute neck pain is one of the most common reasons why people visit our chiropractor.
In many cases, pain and stiffness occur without any obvious cause, but neck pain can be caused by traumatic injury, like whiplash from a car accident, or muscle or ligament strain.
What Causes Neck Pain? Causes of neck pain include:
- Abnormalities in the bone or joints / Subluxations
- Ligament damage or overstretched
- Poor posture
- Degenerative diseases
- Muscle strain
