Neck Pain

woman on couch with neck painWithout a doubt, neck pain is one of the most common complaints we see at our practice. Considering the amount of time people spend at their workstations or on their digital devices at home, it’s no surprise that many suffer from neck pain.


Signs and symptoms of neck pain include the following:

  • Muscle tightness and spasms
  • A decreased ability to move your head
  • Headache

Common Causes

Because your neck is flexible and supports the weight of your head, it can be susceptible to injuries and conditions that result in pain and restricted motion. Here are some of the most common causes of neck pain:

  • Muscle strains: Things like sitting for many hours hunched over your computer often triggers muscle strains. Even reading in bed—especially if you don’t have proper neck support—can strain neck muscles. As you age, your neck joints tend to wear down. Osteoarthritis causes the cushions (cartilage) between your bones (vertebrae) to deteriorate. Your body then develops bone spurs that affect joint motion and result in pain.
  • Nerve compression: Herniated disks or bone spurs in the vertebrae of your neck can put pressure on the nerves that branch out from the spinal cord.
  • Injuries: A rear-end auto collision often results in a whiplash injury. This type of injury occurs when the head is jerked backward and then forward, resulting in the soft tissues of the neck being strained.
