If you have neck pain, know that you are not alone. Neck pain is ranked among the most common type of pain in America. But what is neck pain? Your neck is made up of vertebrae that are supported by muscles, tendons, and ligaments. When these vertebrae become inflamed, they cause neck pain, which can be either acute or chronic.

If neck pain is troubling you in Shively/Dixie area, the good news is that chiropractic care can bring an end to your nightmare. Schedule an appointment with Kentucky Injury & Rehab to experience our natural treatment approach to neck pain.

Causes of Neck Pain

Your neck supports the weight of the head and can turn in almost all directions. While your neck has strong muscles, it can be vulnerable to conditions that restrict movement and cause pain. The common causes of neck pain are:

  • Muscle strains
  • Text neck due to spending too much time leaning forward while reading or staring at digital screens
  • Injuries from auto accidents, sports, and work-related activities
  • Worn out joints
  • Pinched nerves
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Bone spurs

Symptoms of a Neck Injury

Neck pain symptoms depend on the cause of injury. However, the general symptoms include:

  • Muscle tightness and spasms
  • Stiffness and soreness of the neck
  • Stabbing, sharp pain
  • Headache that results from a pinched nerve in the neck
  • Radiating pain from the neck to your shoulders and arms
  • Trouble lifting objects
