Common Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain is a common health problem, afflicting people of all ages. Whether it’s caused by arthritis or hunching over your smartphone, you deserve relief. Maximum Health Clinic of Chiropractic provides dependable treatments to resolve your pain. We believe that a holistic approach addresses all of your health concerns to solve the pain at its root cause. Here are a few common causes of neck pain to be on the watch for, and how our chiropractors can help. 

Muscle Strains

If you’ve ever experienced a muscle strain, you know firsthand how painful it can be. When we overuse our muscles, whether through exertion or by sitting at a desk, it can cause significant discomfort. Clenching your jaw, using too many electronics and sleeping in a poor position can lead to a sore neck. Sometimes, the pain goes away over time as the muscles have a chance to heal. However, if the pain does not go away, it’s an indication of a larger problem. Our chiropractors use gentle techniques to restore mobility and lessen your symptoms. 

Joint Issues

Due to its structure, the neck joints are prone to injury. Due to an injury or a chronic health condition such as arthritis, the soft tissues between each joint degenerate and become worn down. When this occurs, you may feel intense pain since there is nothing to cushion the bones. Joint problems are a leading cause of neck pain, but fortunately, they can be treated through chiropractic care. 

Nerve Compression

Compressed nerves in the neck cause intense pain that may spread to the shoulders. You may also experience weakness, numbness or tingling in the arm. Nerve pain is most commonly associated with herniated discs, a condition occurring when the soft joint tissues become dislodged and press against nearby nerves. When this happens, a chiropractor can ease the pain through manipulative techniques. 


Anytime the neck sustains a blow, it’s at risk for significant injury. Whiplash is one of the most common injuries we treat, which happens after an auto collision. When the neck is jerked rapidly back and forth, it can lead to strained muscles that may last long-term. Chiropractic care can support the neck’s long-term healing to prevent the pain from lasting. 


Certain chronic illnesses, including rheumatoid arthritis, cause neck pain. Chiropractic care is an excellent way to manage the symptoms. These gentle maneuvers can ease the discomfort without causing additional side effects, which is a common concern among patients. 

Prevention and Treatment

Once our chiropractors determine the root cause of your pain, we’ll create an individualized treatment plan that supports your goals. Every patient comes to our office with unique concerns, and we strive to help you achieve your goals for wellness. Usually, preventing neck pain starts with lifestyle changes. Take breaks from technology, stretch often and get enough physical activity. If these changes are difficult, chiropractic can ease the discomfort so you can better improve your habits.
