Given the fact that computer usage and the usage of electronic devices has been soaring for the past several years, it’s not surprising that there is a significantly increased incidence of neck pain in each succeeding year. Studies show that as many as 40% of the residents of any given urban area will experience significant neck pain, and these statistics rise when the sample is limited to office workers.
Most people don’t take any real steps to manage their neck pain, simply accepting it as a cost of doing business, but there are times when it can get to be so prominent, that it’s difficult to focus on anything else. No one really has to tolerate neck pain, because it’s almost always possible to identify the true underlying cause of your neck pain, especially if you seek out chiropractic care such as we offer at Wolke Chiropractic, in North Haledon, New Jersey.
Common causes of neck pain
Your lifestyle may be contributing to your pain
In truth, most causes of neck pain are ultimately attributable to some type of spinal misalignment, and these kinds of misalignment often occur through everyday activities which all of us undertake in our daily lives. Anyone who has been in an automobile accident, may have experienced a whiplash injury in which the neck is jolted violently, and causes injury to the tissue surrounding the spine.
Neck pain can also be caused by a gradual reduction in the normal cervical curve which the spine has. This C-shaped curve is the most natural position for the spine, and when anything happens to disrupt it, it can be manifested as pain in the neck and elsewhere. Poor posture is another culprit for neck pain, because abnormally forward head posture causes unnatural stress on the posterior cervical muscles, as well as the vertebral joints.
Many athletes experience sports injuries, and don’t realize it at the time, but their bodies have sustained barely noticeable spinal misalignments which trigger neck pain. Office workers are particularly susceptible to neck strain because of poor ergonomics at their workstation, and because they spend long hours at a computer terminal.
Even the effects of natural aging can cause spinal degeneration, because your neck joints can simply wear down with age. Some of the vertebrae of the spine can lose their normal movement over time, and these are called spinal subluxations, which are often felt as neck pains. Everyday stress and anxiety can put unexpected emphasis on certain muscles or bones, and cause pain in the neck area.
You might also adopt a poor sleeping position at night, and this can aggravate any neck pain situation you already have. One last cause of neck pain can be a pinched nerve, and this can develop after you have acquired some degree of neck arthritis, or if you have a bulging disk somewhere in the spine.
