Neck pain is probably the second most popular complaint that chiropractors see. Neck pain can be associated with and responsible for numerous other complaints.
There are many diverse causes for neck pain. For example, sleeping in an awkward position, stress, lifting heavy items and motor vehicle accidents. Many times, when there is extensive arthritis, or disc problems, a link can be found to an earlier accident. Although when young the body deals with the injury, over time arthritis results. The forces involved in motor vehicle accident are extreme and it is wise to seek treatment.
