Many of our patients at Impulse Chiropractic present to our clinic with neck pain.

Neck pain is becoming an increasingly common issue throughout the world, with around two thirds of people experiencing neck pain at some point in their lives. This comes as no surprise when you consider current lifestyle trends, such as increasing device usage, increased sedentary lifestyles, working from home and poor posture.

The most common type of neck pain is non-specific neck pain and is usually related to postural and mechanical strain on the cervical spine. Pain can originate from any of the musculoskeletal structures in this area, such as, muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, nerves and discs.

The neck (cervical spine) is responsible for supporting the weight of the head, as well as creating large ranges of movement for the head. Due to this role, it endures a large amount of mechanical load, which in turn, can lead to several painful musculoskeletal conditions.

Some common causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle strains, tension, trigger points
  • Joint stiffness and inflammation
  • Weakness or instability
  • Nerve compression
  • Disc injury
  • Degeneration – wear and tear of joints and soft tissue
