A Guide to Types of Neck Pain

Like spinal conditions in the back, neck pain can be categorized into different types based on the underlying causes. Understanding your specific need is essential in developing an effective method of care.

We see people with various types of neck pain, including

Mechanical Neck Pain—occurs when the vertebrae in the neck shift out of position due to factors like improper sleeping postures or lifting heavy objects. Muscle strains, tendon strains, ligament sprains, and disc irritation may also contribute to mechanical neck pain.

Arthritic Flare-ups—as we age, the neck joints can experience arthritis, leading to inflammation and pain in the neck area. Our focus is on reducing inflammation and managing arthritic symptoms.

Soft Tissue Injuries—traumatic incidents, such as car accidents or sports injuries, may result in soft tissue injuries in the neck, causing pain, muscle spasms, and restricted movement. Our tailored care plans address these specific injuries.
