Understanding Neck Pain

Neck pain is the mild or severe discomfort in the vertebrae, joints, discs, muscles, and nerves in the cervical spine. If you have neck pain, you may experience stiffness, soreness, sharp pain, radiating pain, numbness, and tingling. When a neck injury or misalignment occurs, the pain can radiate to other parts of your body. It can also cause additional health issues if left untreated. Sometimes, the pain is due to a muscle strain caused by overuse or an injury. However, it can also develop due to a disease or a traumatic injury. If the neck pain radiates to other parts of the body, it may feel like pins and needles, numbness, or a burning sensation. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, we recommend consulting with our chiropractors as soon as possible.
