9 Causes of Neck Pain

As every upper cervical chiropractor in Redwood City knows, neck pain can be due to different things. It is best to understand how people can sustain a painful injury in the neck.

1. Carrying Imbalanced Load

When we carry a heavy load on one side of our body, the other side compensates for the load, and this causes pain and muscle tension across the back and upwards to the neck. 

2. Poor Posture in Bed

Using a very thick or high pillow can put an unnecessary strain on the neck. 

3. Repetitive Action

These repetitive activities include sewing, construction work like shoveling, or some factory-based occupation that puts a person in a semi-static unnatural position or posture. 

4. Slouching

When the neck protrudes forward and the upper back is hunched, it stresses the entire spinal column.  

5. TMJ Disorder

When the temporomandibular joint is misaligned, it can produce facial, jaw, and neck pain. 

6. Pinched Nerve

A pinched nerve in the neck area can make a person experience tingling, numbness, or weakness in the neck. 

7. Arthritis

Osteoarthritis is an inflammatory condition that can also affect and hurt the neck. 

8. Accidents

Fender-benders, slips while riding a motorcycle, a nasty fall, or slip on a wet floor can cause neck pain. 

9. Upper Cervical Spine Misalignment

The misalignment causes neck pain because it is very likely that a nerve is compressed or impinged. In some cases, a ligament in the neck is overly stretched or inflamed.
