Possible causes of neck pain include:
- Poor Posture
- Poor sustained posture- often seen in office workers
- Arthritis or degeneration
- Injury (such as whiplash)
- Sleeping awkwardly or sleeping on a non-supportive pillow
A recent study, Bronfort et al, showed that chiropractic adjustments combined with rehabilitation exercises produced long term pain reduction for chronic neck pain patients. Hoving et al found that the patients receiving chiropractic care had faster relief in symptoms than the other groups.
