Neck pain is one of the 2 most common reasons people seek chiropractic treatment. With our current busy lifestyle of more work and less play, no wonder we often find ourselves stiff and sore.

A test to see how well your neck is moving is to turn it from side to side. If your nose can reach your shoulder, you have great movement in your neck. If it is painful, tight or feels locked, you may need to see someone to loosen the muscles and free the spinal joints which may be causing you irritation.

Possible causes of neck pain include:

  • Poor Posture
  • Poor sustained posture- often seen in office workers
  • Arthritis or degeneration
  • Injury (such as whiplash)
  • Stress
  • 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.

Neck pain can be prevented in most cases unless you are in an accident.

Certain lifestyle choices can be made to prevent neck pain. Those lifestyle choices include:

  • Avoiding physical activity that puts an unnecessary strain on your neck
