Neck Pain, Neck Ache, Headache, Headaches, Migraine, Migraines, Neck Injury, Neck Trauma, TMJ, Neck Alignment, text neck, texting Have you ever gotten up in the morning thinking you must have just slept wrong? The fact is that neck pain does not just magically appear. Something caused it. And while it may actually be the way you slept, it is important to make sure you are doing what you can to prevent further damage.

The truth is that many people go about their daily lives doing things that can cause neck issues. What are some of the most common culprits?

  • Repetitive motion – Just straining the neck in the same way repeatedly can cause chronic neck pain.
  • Technology overuse – Craning the neck to look at a phone, tablet, TV, or monitor can result in chronic pain. Be especially careful to never hold your phone between your head and your shoulder.
  • Sleep position – Sleeping on your stomach is most likely to cause an issue. Sleeping on your back is the best position.
  • Stress – Stress causes the muscles connecting the head and neck to tense up. Over a period of time, this results in overuse pain.
  • Propping up the head – If you have a habit of leaning your chin on your palm or fist, this can result in neck strain.


How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Can Help

As you can see, there are many simple habits that can lead to neck pain. Ceasing these habits is a great way to start on the road to recovery. However, if the habit has led to a misalignment of the uppermost vertebrae in the neck, more will be needed than just new habits.

At Scenic City Clinic of Chiropractic, we use the Atlas Orthogonal technique to diagnose and correct upper cervical misalignments. Such a misalignment can result in many problems and chronic conditions. Once the misalignment is corrected, you may be surprised at how much it helps to improve your overall health.
