Types of Neck Pain and Common Causes

Aches: Aching may be confined to the neck area, but often, it spreads to your shoulders and upper back. It is often caused by postural problems such as looking down at your smart phone or computer keyboard for most of the day. In some cases, you may get this pain from repetitive head movements related to work or some other activity, as well.

Sharp Pains: These are often caused by injuries or pinched nerves. Whenever you move your head in the "wrong" way, you aggravate the problem and it sends a sharp pain in response. Fractures and other such issues can cause sudden jolts of pain as well.

Tingling, Weakness, and Other Neurological Symptoms:  Sensations like this indicate nerve involvement. A bulging or herniated disc and some spinal misalignments can cause these symptoms in the neck.

Preventing Neck Pain

Good posture is the best preventive of neck pain. If a work situation requires you to make unhealthy movements, you need to change your setup so these movements are no longer needed. Finally, take care to avoid accidents as much as possible.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

If your neck already hurts, seeing a chiropractor will allow you to greatly speed up healing and get relief. Our doctor will use a combination of manual cervical traction, cervical mobilization, and the cervical drop technique to loosen up your neck and get everything properly aligned. Other treatments may be added as needed.

  • "Great staff! Friendly and efficient. Because of an insurance change, I was unable to come for too long. Thanks to a buyout, I am back! Doc does an awesome job. He listens to what the problem is and works to correct it. He doesn't rush you in and out as fast as he can. Excellent."

  • "I've been going to Twin Oaks Chiropractic for about a month now. I've had an awesome experience with the doctor and staff. I also purchased the pillow sold in the office. You add water to it so you get the perfect amount of "fluff." With the pillow, my neck pain has decreased dramatically, and I am sleeping better! Because of the treatments, massage, and pillow, I am in far less pain and overall, much happier. Thank you to the staff and doctor there!"
