Neck Pain Q & A

Why does my neck hurt?

Neck pain can come from any of the anatomical structures in the neck, including:

  • Cervical vertebrae
  • Cervical discs
  • Intervertebral joints
  • Cervical nerves
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles

There are specific types of pain associated with these structures as well, which can help the neck pain specialists determine the source of your pain. Common pain sensations associated with neck pain include:

  • Dull, achy, or throbbing pain
  • Sharp, stabbing pain
  • Shooting pain or numbness and tingling down your arms or spine area
  • Stiffness and decreased range of motion
  • Tightness

Pain may also become worse with certain movements, including turning your head or bending your neck forward, backward, or side to side.

What causes neck pain?

Many conditions can cause neck pain and may arise from acute injuries — including whiplash — or may be the result of chronic poor posture or wear-and-tear. Common causes of neck pain include:

  • Intersegmental dysfunction
  • Tension headaches
  • Cervical facet syndrome
  • Whiplash injuries
  • Cervical spinal stenosis
  • Cervical radiculopathy
  • Disc herniations

Pain down your arms — whether sharp or tingling — may also be associated with neck pain. The team always performs a thorough exam to determine the cause of your pain and any other associated symptoms.

How is neck pain diagnosed?

The cause of your neck pain is diagnosed following a comprehensive consultation and exam with your provider. They first ask about your condition, activities that increase or decrease your pain, and the location of your pain. Then they take you through a series of movements to check your range of motion and flexibility.

During the orthopedic neck exam, your provider may stretch your neck, apply pressure on your neck or shoulders, or push down on the top of your head gently to compress the joints in your spine. If indicated, the team may send you to an imaging center for X-rays or an MRI.

How is neck pain treated?

Based on your consultation and exam, the team diagnoses the cause of your neck plan and recommends a treatment approach. Most causes of neck pain respond well to chiropractic care, rehabilitation, soft tissue work, and at-home exercises.

Your provider may also recommend postural changes or improving the ergonomics of your workstation, if appropriate. If your pain doesn’t resolve with conservative care, the team provides referrals to other specialists in the area for further treatment.
