How Repetitive Motion Injuries Cause Chronic Neck Pain

At some point, you have likely complained about neck pain. This is a common condition, and the causes may vary from simple to severe and complicated. If you experience neck pain frequently, you may warrant a visit to an upper cervical chiropractor in Redwood City to find long-term care.

More often than not, neck pain always puts more stress and pressure on the spine. Also, repetitive motion injury, or when you repeatedly move your neck the same way, leads to chronic neck pain. This is due to the overuse of muscles, joints, or tendons on the affected part.


What Causes Repetitive Motion Injuries?

There are different factors at play, and you may be unaware that your daily habits might be contributing to the neck pain that can eventually affect your everyday life. Watch out for these causes, and we encourage you to make adjustments to prevent or progress your neck pain as early as possible. If you suspect that any of these causes contribute to your chronic neck pain, discuss the most sustainable care regimen with your upper cervical chiropractor in Redwood City to manage your symptoms and eliminate them.

  • Repetitive activities or movement
  • High-intensity motion for a long time without rest
  • Poor posture 
  • Engaging in activities that involve working in an awkward position
  • Stress
  • Cold temperatures
  • Working with vibrating equipment


Signs of Repetitive Motion Injuries

There are symptoms of repetitive motion injuries; they can be mild to severe and even gradually progress, causing more discomfort than before. Check for signs like:

  • Pain, aching, or tenderness
  • Stiffness
  • Throbbing
  • Tingling or numbness
  • Weakness
  • Cramp


Correcting the Cause of Neck Pain

If making changes to your habits that may likely be causing neck pain did not make a difference, there could be an undetected misalignment of the topmost bone of your spine located in your neck area. That vertebra, your atlas (C1), is the most movable bone of the entire spine responsible for carrying the weight of your head. This same bone also protects your brainstem, responsible for sending signals to your brain. 

An upper cervical chiropractor in Redwood City can diagnose a misalignment and plan the best course of action to get complete relief.
