Understanding Neck Pain

When your neck is injured due to an accident, disease, or misalignment, the pain can be intense and extend to other parts of your body. The pain may indicate weekend muscles or inflammation and if you have misalignments in your spine, it is important to consult with our chiropractor for an evaluation.

If neck pain is not treated, it may radiate to the upper body and eventually into the arms, hands, and fingers due to cervical radiculopathy. You may experience numbness, pins and needles, stinging, and a burning sensation. Not only that, but you might also require emergency care, so it is important not to ignore neck pain.

Causes of Neck Pain

The causes of neck pain are often difficult to determine due to how the spine and central nervous system are interconnected to the rest of the body. At Ivy Commons Family Chiropractic, we utilize technology and diagnostics to accurately identify the root cause of your neck pain and provide treatment. Some causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle tension and stress
  • Misaligned discs
  • Nerve compression
  • Nerve injury or damage
  • Auto accident injury
  • Whiplash
  • Degenerative disorders
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated discs
  • Poor posture
