Why the Neck Hurts – Top Reasons for Chronic Pain Explained

chronic pain, NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City

Many patients turn to NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City because of neck pain. And notably, most of these people are unaware of why they experience pain and barely experience relief even after taking pain medication or trying other remedies. Understanding this concern, we thought of tackling the common causes of chronic neck pain. Hopefully, you can better manage your pain after learning about these health mishaps.

Excessive mobile gadget use

As per the latest statistics, the average American spends around 3 hours and 43 minutes on their mobile phone or tablet. Notably, most individuals view their phones or mobile gadget with their heads tilted at a certain angle. Studies explain that this puts pressure on the uppermost neck bones because of gravity's effect on the head's weight. As you keep your head tilted to a specific angle for a few minutes or hours, your neck bones suffer more and more. It can also stiffen your neck muscles and joints. 

Repetitive motion injuries 

Countless people develop neck pain, especially those who engage in repetitive activities like working at the assembly line, demolishing structures, and using vibrating equipment. The repetitive movements they perform leave them highly susceptible to minor injuries. 

Stress-related injuries

Neck pain is a relatively common consequence of stress. Studies explain that stress causes the muscles to tense up. It can also aggravate neck pain-causing conditions like arthritis. 

Previous neck and head trauma

Unknown to many, neck pain can sometimes stem from previously sustained neck and head trauma. Notably, this is a common reason behind the neck discomfort felt by patients seeking NUCCA Chiropractic in Redwood City. Traumatic injuries cause the uppermost neck bones to shift. Unfortunately, the postural misalignment that stems from this can set off various problems that can aggravate neck pain. These factors include: 

  • Strained muscles and joints
  • Unlevelled shoulders and arms
  • Compressed or irritated brainstem
  • Increased pain sensitivity
