Neck Pain

4 Common Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain can be a real nuisance; it's no wonder the phrase "pain in the neck" exists! Unfortunately, many individuals have accepted this agony as part of their daily lives and often attribute it to stress or simply working at a desk for too long. However, neck pain can be caused by a variety of underlying issues. Here are 5 common causes of neck pain:

Twisted or Locked Neck

Acute torticollis, otherwise known as a twisted or locked neck, is the result of harm to the neck muscles and joints. It can be caused by a range of factors including bad posture, improper sleeping positions, poor posture whilst driving and carrying heavy bags for extended periods.

Wear and Tear in the Neck (Cervical Spondylosis)

Neck pain can be caused by wear and tear to the bones and joints in your neck. This leads to stiffness, inflammation, reduced movement, and pain down the arms. Many people also experience numbness, tingling, and weakness in the arms and hands. Neck pain caused by wear and tear is particularly common among the over 50s.

Neck Pain Caused by Whiplash

Whiplash is caused by a sudden movement of the head, commonly caused by an impact such as a car accident, although it can be caused by any sudden impact that causes the neck to overstretch. This damages the tendons and ligaments causing agonising neck pain. Whiplash can also cause tenderness, headaches and limited, painful neck movements.

Neck Pain Caused by a Pinched Nerve (Cervical Radiculopathy)

Neck pain can be caused by pressure on a nerve in the neck. This nerve pressure can cause the symptoms to radiate down the arm. These include pain, pins and needles, and loss of sensation in the arm.

When to See a Chiropractor for Neck Pain

If gentle neck stretching is not helping, and you're experiencing neck pain that lasts longer than a few weeks or is becoming increasingly severe, it's time to seek help from a chiropractor. Our chiropractors can assess your condition and provide a personalised treatment plan to relieve the pain and prevent it from returning.
