Neck pain can be so mild that it is merely annoying and distracting. Or it can be so severe that it is unbearable and incapacitating. Most instances of neck pain (and stiffness) are minor and commonly caused by something you did such as keeping your head in an awkward position for too long such as working, watching TV, using a computer, reading a book, or talking on the phone with the receiver held against your shoulder and under your chin.
Neck pain that lasts for many days or keeps coming back is a signal that something isn't right. An injury (such as whiplash in an auto accident), a congenital malformation, or progressive degeneration from age may be responsible for the more significant pain you experience.
An chiropractic expert can determine the underlying causes of such neck pain. Examination, diagnosis and treatment by a doctor of chiropractic can relieve your mind and may quickly relieve your pain. A chiropractor can restore the mobility and range of motion of any frozen neck vertebrae. Many times you may not even notice the loss in range of motion in your neck due to compensating techniques you might have developed over time.
