Common Causes of Neck Pain/Misalignment
Neck pain can occur as a result of misalignment of the upper spine from degenerative disc disease or congenital spinal problems. Repetitive movements of the head, as well as constant stress, can lead to neck pain. Poor posture and bad sleeping habits can cause neck discomfort. Many people who work at computers throughout the day develop neck pain from holding their heads at the same angle for hours. Athletes may develop neck pain from wrenching of muscles and back structures, during play. Whiplash from auto accidents is another common cause of ongoing neck pain. Certain diseases, such as osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis can also contribute to chronic neck pain, and while treatment of the underlying condition can help reduce discomfort, chiropractic measures can help to eliminate residual discomfort.
