Neck & Upper Back Pain

How did I get Neck Pain?

Maybe you are in one position for too long it shows up in places you don’t think of, like working at a computer, texting, or even driving to work. The result of overusing your body in an otherwise normal way can be a pain much like any other strain.

Or maybe you’ve been injured took a bump playing sports, stumbled or slipped, or had an accident. Pain can be a warning sign of a more serious injury.

What can I expect with neck pain?

As the name suggests, many people expect pain in the neck as their biggest complaint. It can show up anywhere from the bottom of the hairline down to the shoulder blades. In some people the pain travels to their arm. For some people it’s disabling, while for others its a distraction. It can be constant, or it can come-and-go. It can limit how much you move your head and neck. And in some people it comes with a special kind of headache, called cervicogenic. People with cervicogenic headaches often notice that pushing on a spot of their neck will make the headache worse.

Whether you are seeking neck pain treatment, arm pain treatment, or headache treatment, if you experience neck pain for more than just a few days consult a chiropractor for an assessment. A careful evaluation from your healthcare provider will help determine if you can be helped with chiropractic care.
