What causes neck pain?
Your neck is made up of vertebrae, each separated by gel-like cushions: your nerves and discs. If something happens to cause one or more of your vertebrae to shift out of alignment, you can suffer from a “pinched” nerve due to overcrowding. As a result, you experience neck pain.
Pain in your neck can result from a pinched nerve or an injury, whiplash being one of the most common. It occurs when your neck suddenly moves forward and backward or from side to side.
What can cause your vertebrae to shift?
Misalignment of your vertebrae can occur due to various reasons. Common examples include:
Keeping your neck in an awkward position for a long duration of time (e.g., painting your ceiling)
Continually sleeping on your stomach or using a flat pillow
Forcing your neck beyond its normal range of motion (e.g., whiplash from a car accident or suffering from a major fall off your ladder)

Neck Pain Q & A
What causes neck pain?
Neck pain can be caused due to a variety of diffident problems, ranging from osteoarthritis to muscle strain or sprain, cervical stenosis, whip-lash injuries, and disc herniation.
What symptoms are associated with neck pain?
The most common symptoms associated with neck pain include muscle tightness, point tenderness, decreased range of motion, headache, tingling, and numbness in the arms.
Why does whiplash cause neck pain?
Whiplash causes pain due to the large and small muscles and ligaments in the spine being stretched, sprained, and strained due to the force of the head being whipped back and forth. These damaged tendons, ligaments, and muscles can be very painful and can cause swelling, muscle spasms, and very tender areas of the neck.
How are bulging discs related to neck pain?
It’s possible to have a bulging disc in your neck that does not cause you pain. Bulging discs can cause some localized discomfort in that region or they could cause some radiating pain into the upper traps, shoulder, and arms.
How do chiropractic adjustments relieve neck pain?
Improving the alignment of the vertebra in the neck helps relieve strain on the muscles in that area and improves the function of the nerves that exit the spine in that particular region.
What are the benefits of treating neck pain with chiropractic care?
Chiropractic care helps reduce acute pain in the neck and also prevents chronic pain from getting worse. Maintaining proper alignment and joint function allows for proper nervous system function in the neck, which results in less pain.
Can stem cell therapies help me with my chronic neck pain?
Depending on the condition, regenerative medicine and human cell and tissue products have shown to improve neck pain.
How does stem cell therapy for neck pain work?
Regenerative Medicine and human cell and tissue products have been shown to help repair damaged areas of the neck to reduce pain and improve joint function. The cells have been shown to have the capacity to turn into cartilage, muscle, tendon, etc. in damaged areas of the body to help the body in healing that area.
