Neck Pain

Aside from low back pain, neck pain is the second most common type of spinal-related pain. Neck pain can vary in intensity, from mild, annoying pain to severe, debilitating pain. Neck pain can result in pain that is local to the neck, but may also result in symptoms that travel into the shoulder, arm, and hand. Neck pain also commonly leads to headaches.

Causes of neck pain may include the following:

  • Spinal or vertebral misalignment
  • Pinched nerves
  • Herniated or bulged discs
  • Poor posture
  • Sitting or driving for extended periods
  • Working at a desk or computer
  • Prolonged use of a tablet or smartphone
  • Repetitive motion
  • Motor vehicle accidents, including whiplash injuries
  • Work-related injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Old or new injuries, including slips and falls
  • Arthritis or joint and disc degeneration

Symptoms may include the following:
  • Restricted or painful range of motion
  • Shoulder pain
  • Elbow pain
  • Wrist pain or hand pain
  • Arm pain, tingling, numbness, or weakness
  • Loss of grip strength
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Muscle tightness in the neck or upper back
  • Torticollis or wry neck
  • TMJ or jaw pain
  • Facial pain, tingling, or numbness
