Neck Pain Q & A

Why does my neck hurt?

Strain or damage to the muscles, ligaments, tendons, or bones in the neck are common causes of neck pain. Typical triggers for neck pain include:

  • Muscle strain or overuse
  • Wear in the joints from osteoarthritis
  • Compressed nerves
  • Stress and anxiety that causes muscle tension in the neck and jaw
  • Herniated discs
  • Bone spurs
  • Whiplash injuries

Neck pain may also be a symptom of some diseases, including:

  • Cancer
  • Meningitis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Cervical stenosis
  • Osteoporosis
  • Cervical spondylosis

Neck pain that isn’t treated can become a chronic problem. Furthermore, if discs or vertebrae continue to degenerate, the pain can worsen, and your range of movement can become restricted.

Can therapy help neck pain?

People often take painkillers to reduce pain and inflammation. These can help, but they won’t address the cause of your problem. So if symptoms persist, see Dr. Graham to find out what’s causing your neck pain. He’ll assess your symptoms and review your medical history before commencing any treatment. Treatment may involve:

  • Chiropractic therapy
  • Massage therapy
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises
  • Advice on home treatments and lifestyle changes

Dr. Graham has years of experience treating neck pain. He will give you a thorough examination and pinpoint the location and cause of your neck pain. Then he’ll provide treatment to correct the problem to give you relief.

Can home treatment help neck pain?

There's a range of home treatment options available for neck pain. The simplest and quickest option is to stop any bad habits. You should avoid behaviors, such as:

  • Carrying heavy bags on one shoulder
  • Slouching or slumping when you sit down
  • Using your shoulder to support a phone
  • Sleeping so your neck is in a crooked position

Improving your posture as you go about your daily life can help prevent painful problems in your neck and spine. You should also make sure your pillows are supporting your head and neck at night.
