What is the Most Common Cause of Neck Pain?
Although whiplash (sudden movement of the head, like from a car accident) is one of the most common mechanism of neck pain we see at our chiropractic office, the most common underlying cause to neck pain is found at the spinal nerves in the neck, such as a pinched nerve. Other common causes are prior injuries to the neck, degenerative discs and even failed neck surgeries. Patients generally seek treatment when they are unable to move their neck, head or body. However, the moment your neck pain begins to flare up, you should seek treatment to reduce your recovery time.
