Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Millions of Americans suffer from neck pain. It's one of the most common issues that drive patients to seek medical assistance. Neck pain is most commonly caused by poor posture. Many people spend hours sitting at a desk, hunched over a computer, or are constantly looking down at their smartphones or tablets. This causes a condition called "forward head syndrome" or as it's more commonly referred to, "text neck". Another common cause of neck pain is injuries, either from an automobile accident or a slip-and-fall accident at work or home. Whiplash is a very common injury following a car accident. Medical conditions like osteoarthritis can also lead to pain in the neck. While neck pain isn't often associated with a serious condition, if a patient experiences neck pain combined with numbness a loss of strength in the arms or hands, or acute shooting pain in the shoulders, medical attention should be sought as soon as possible.

How's neck pain diagnosed?

Our team of medical doctors and chiropractors use a variety of assessments to identify the cause of a patient's neck pain. In most cases, the medical practitioner will perform a thorough physical examination to test flexibility and range of motion. He or she will ask questions about the patient's lifestyle habits, general health, and well-being, and if any injuries or accidents have been recently sustained. If the doctor requires additional information he or she may order additional diagnostic assessments such as x-rays, CT scans, MRIs, and electrodiagnostic studies like nerve conduction velocity and electromyography.
