The neck is located between the head and the shoulders. Because of its location and range-of-motion, it is often left unprotected and subject to injury.
What causes neck pain?
Neck pain can result from many different causes — from injury, to age-related disorders, or inflammatory disease. Causes of neck pain and problems may include the following:
- Injury (damage to the muscles, tendons, and/or ligaments)
- Herniated cervical disk
- Arthritis (for example, osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis)
- Cervical disk degeneration
Whiplash is another cause of neck pain. It often occurs as a result of a car accident, but what many people do not know is that it can also be caused by countless other situations, as mild as they may seem when they happen. Whiplash can even be caused by an inadequate sleeping position. Many people dismiss the pain thinking that the soreness will go away on its own, which only makes the injury worse. Our Dallas, Fort Worth chiropractors will be able to determine whether treatment for whiplash is needed.
