Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Poor posture, car accidents, and degenerative changes to the spine are some of the causes of neck pain. Your neck, also called the cervical spine, runs from the base of your skull to the top of your shoulders, supporting the weight and movement of your head.

The structure and function of your neck make it more vulnerable to conditions that cause pain, such as:

  • Muscle strain from poor posture
  • Injuries like whiplash and herniated discs
  • Degenerative conditions like arthritis and degenerative disc disease (DDD)

Poor posture and injuries may also cause spinal misalignments leading to pinched nerves that cause pain that radiates into the head, shoulders, or upper back. 

My neck pain is getting worse. When should I consider chiropractic care?

You should schedule an examination at IllumINNATE Walk-In Family Chiropractic for chiropractic care if you have any type of neck pain that’s affecting your quality of life. Whether your pain is from poor posture, an injury, or a chronic condition, the professionally certified chiropractors can help you regain pain-free living.

Chiropractic care for your neck pain provides immediate relief and may prevent future problems. 

Your chiropractor at IllumINNATE Walk-In Family Chiropractic conducts a thorough evaluation before making any treatment recommendations. They ask about your pain, when it started, and the activities that worsen it. 

They review your day-to-day routine and medical history, inquire about your goals for treatment, and perform a physical exam. Your chiropractor may also order X-ray imaging to evaluate the cervical spine and look for a structural cause for your pain.
