What’s To Blame For Your Neck Pain?

Neck pain can range from just a few days of uncomfortable neck stiffness to weeks or months or more of debilitating severe pain.  More than 30 percent of people suffer from neck pain each year.  According to Dr. Steven Cohen, director of the Johns Hopkins Blaustein Pain Treatment Center, neck pain doesn’t receive as much attention as back pain despite being one of the top five causes of pain worldwide and in the U.S.

So, what is it that is causing so many episodes of neck pain?  In a U.S. News and World Report article, the number one factor is job-related, and it’s not the particular job you may have, but rather how you feel about it.  If you are unhappy with your job or don’t care for your boss, this can lead to depression, poor sleep quality, and injury all connected to chronic neck pain. 

Posture may also be to blame.  This can begin with sleeping position; stomach sleeping can put great stress and strain on the neck.  For people who spend their days working behind a desk or at a computer, their posture can certainly be contributing to additional strain on the neck and spinal joints.

Neck pain specialists Drs. Todd and Christi Osborne have seen it all when it comes to the breadth of neck pain cases.  As chiropractors who focus on the upper cervical vertebrae of the spine, they are able to locate even the smallest misalignments that can easily be the underlying cause of many people’s neck pain.  While working on the soft tissues of the neck may be beneficial, if there is a problem with spinal alignment, the soft tissue treatment approach may be as temporary as taking an aspirin.  The Osbornes look for the root cause of their patients’ neck pain and using very gentle and specific adjustments to the top two vertebrae of the neck, work towards restoring the supporting spinal structures back to their normal, natural alignment.
