Neck Pain

Some common causes of neck pain include: trauma or an injury, high levels of stress, falling asleep in an awkward position or as a result of whiplash injury
during an auto accident.

Symptoms of neck pain include:

  • General pain in the neck area accompanied by some stiffness
  • Pain may extend down between the shoulder blades, out along the arms or up into the head
  • The muscles in the neck are tense and sore to the touch
  • A prickling or tingling sensation may occur in the arms and fingers

Your chiropractor will have you undergo an examination that can include: testing the range of movement of the neck, testing for trapped nerves, examination of the muscles and movement of the spine and neck. In some cases, x-rays or blood work may be performed to determine an exact diagnosis.
