Neck Pain Q & A

What are the parts of the neck?

The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of your skull and is an intricate network of nerves, bones, joints, and muscles. Seven vertebrae give the neck structure so that it can support the multiple, complex movements of your neck and head. Between the vertebrae are discs and nerves, which are common culprits in neck pain.

What causes neck pain?

Because it has such a wide range of motion, your neck is one of the most vulnerable parts of your body to experience achiness, shooting pains, and burning sensations. There are several common causes that your Absolute Healthcare Advanced Chiropractic doctor investigates during your evaluation, including:

  • Poor posture
  • Sleeping position
  • Muscle strain
  • Sports injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Repetitive movements
  • Pinched nerve
  • Herniated disc
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease

How do you prevent neck pain?

By paying attention to how you use your neck, you can help lower your chances of developing neck pain. Here are a few things to practice each day:

  • Use a pillow that conforms to your neck
  • Sleep on your back or side
  • Concentrate on keeping good posture by not slumping when you sit or stand
  • Raise computer monitors to eye level
  • Try a standing desk
  • Avoid looking down constantly while texting or reading on a phone or tablet
