The Causes and Treatment of Neck Pain

​Whether subtle or intense, neck pain has the ability to reduce your quality of life. It can dim your mood, dampen your spirit, and cause you to live a life without luster. That is, unless you make it a point to visit your Portland (Woodstock, Sellwood) chiropractor who is here to help you recover.

Neck Pain Causes

Many issues can bring about discomfort in your neck. Being injured in a car crash can cause whiplash injury, as can other trauma to the cervical spine. Sports injuries can result in neck pain as well, leaving you stiff and sore.

Poor posture can also increase neck pain since the spine isn’t positioned in a way to effectively support your head. This can cause muscle strain, headaches, and dizziness, which can further decrease your quality of life.

If you carry stress and anxiety in your upper body it can tense up the neck muscles, leaving you with aches and discomfort that reach from your shoulders to the top of your head.
