Neck pain

With roughly two-thirds of the population suffering from neck pain,
its no wonder this condition is one of the most common issues we address.

 

Although the location of the pain is felt in the neck region, the actual cause of the neck pain can be cause by numerous other spinal problems. Often the result of muscular tightness, neck pain is sometimes caused by pinched nerves emanating from the cervical vertebrae. Neck pain can also be caused by joint disruption in the neck and joint disruption in the upper back.

As the head is supported by the lower neck and upper back, these areas typically cause neck pain. The first three joints in the neck allow for the majority of movement in your neck and head. Below these, the lower joints in the neck and those of the upper back region create a support structure for your head. When this support structure is adversely affected, the muscles will tighten and lead to common neck pain. Neck pain can also arise from emotional, physical and stress related health problems.
