Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

A number of factors can lead to neck pain. For many patients who seek chiropractic care, neck pain results from whiplash, a painful condition that occurs when the head and neck are violently “whipped” back and forth as the result of an impact, usually from a car accident.

Other common causes of neck pain include:

  • Posture-related issues: constant hunching over or leaning forward while working at a computer
  • Medical conditions: fibromyalgia, osteoarthritis, tension headaches, TMJ
  • Disc degeneration: herniated or bulging discs in the spinal column

If you have chronic neck pain, stress and nutritional factors can also worsen your symptoms.

What are the symptoms of neck pain?

Neck pain can manifest in several ways. The pain may take on different qualities over time, or it can depend on your level of activity or stress.

Common symptoms of a neck condition include:

  • Stiff neck
