Causes of Neck Pain Explained

At McIntyre Chiropractic & Acupuncture Centre, our Webster Groves chiropractor provides natural neck pain relief. If you have a stiff neck, explore what might be causing it and how we can help.

Causes of Neck Pain

Top causes of neck pain include:

  • Disc herniation – A herniated disc stresses the neck spine, creates pain and stiffness, and affects your quality of life. We can elongate the spine to reverse disc herniation and reduce your pain.
  • Whiplash – A frequent auto accident injury, whiplash causes pain, stiffness, soreness, and headaches. Chiropractic treats whiplash by realigning the cervical spine, which was thrust out of alignment in the accident.
  • Sports or work injury – Getting injured on the job or playing sports can cause neck trauma.
  • Poor posture and text neck – Looking down all the time can shift your neck forward and cause a stiff neck. This strains neck muscles and causes pain. We can shift your neck back into alignment while providing ergonomic suggestions to reduce neck pain associated with poor posture, poor workplace ergonomics, and heavy texting.

Once we determine the underlying cause of your neck pain, we can provide neck pain relief.

How Our Webster Groves Chiropractor Can Help

We take a two-pronged approach for neck pain relief by combining chiropractic adjustments with acupuncture treatments.

Chiropractic adjustments soothe the nervous system, restore spinal alignment, and reduce inflammation. As we bring your neck back into alignment, the stiff and sore neck you’ve been experiencing will get better. You’ll notice improved range of motion and decreased pain with every adjustment.

Acupuncture releases endorphins to decrease neck pain, increase circulation in your muscles, and promote your body’s natural recovery process. Acupuncture also works on your body’s energy fields, relieving internal blockages that cause tightness and pain.

By combining these therapies, we can manage your pain quickly and prevent it from coming back.
