Neck pain, either acute or chronic is one of the top three reasons a patient attends a Chiropractor. It refers to a pain anywhere around the neck (and commonly referring into the shoulders as well). The origin of the pain can be the muscles of the neck, the ligaments, joints, or nerves of the cervical spine.
Neck pain is becoming more prevalent in society due to the increase use of phones, tablets and laptops. As a consequence in Chiropractic we are seeing more patients with neck pain due the bad posture associated with using those devices.
