Whether slight or extreme, neck pain has the capacity to make your days long and your night short. It can darken your mood, weaken your spirit, and cause you to live a life without luster. That is, unless you make it a point to go to your Salem, OR chiropractor and do something to take care of it.
What Triggers Neck Pain
Several problems can contribute to discomfort in your neck, which is the cervical area of your spine. Being involved in a car crash can cause whiplash, as will any trauma to the cervical spine. Sports injuries can result in neck pain too, leaving you tender and sore.
Poor posture can also contribute to neck pain because the spine isn't positioned in a way to properly support your head. This can lead to strained muscles, headaches, and dizziness, which can further reduce your quality of life.
When you carry stress and tension in your upper body it can strain the muscles in your neck, causing aches and soreness that extend from your shoulders to the top of your head.
