Neck pain is one of the most common conditions treated at Carrollton Chiropractic and Massage. Your neck, spine and shoulders contain muscles, bones, discs, nerves, ligaments and other supporting structures. The most common causes of pain in the neck and shoulder area stem from:

  • Herniated discs or bulging discs
  • Whiplash Treatment or neck Injury
  • Sprained or Strained Ligaments
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Osteoarthritis or Cervical Spondylosis
  • Spinal Misalignments
  • Poor Posture, stressful lifestyle or poor diet

Neck problems are seldom caused by one specific problem, but usually involves a combination of tight muscles, joint immobility, disc problems, and pressure on the nerves.

There are several reasons why neck pain is so common in our society. Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture, leaning over your computer, sitting for extended periods, or hunching over your workbench. Car accidents and whiplash injuries are a common cause of pain that may last a lifetime. Chronic texting or tablet use can strain your posture and increase the chance of neck pain. Osteoarthritis, or chronic wear-and tear, is also a common cause of neck pain.

If your neck pain is accompanied by numbness, loss of strength in your arms/hands, or if you have shooting pain into your shoulder or down your arm, seek immediate care as these symptoms may indicate a more serious problem. It is also wise to remember that neck and shoulder function go hand in hand. If you’re having shoulder pain, get your neck checked out. And if you’re having neck pain, get your shoulder evaluated.
