You may be dealing with cervicalgia, the medical term for neck pain. This type of pain can have a number of different causes, such as:

  • Sedentary lifestyle
  • Arthritis
  • A slipped disc type of injury
  • Consistently poor posture
  • Impactsoccurringduring sports participation, and;
  • Traumatic injuries such as whiplash

The pain can be localised within the neck area, but often also affects other parts of the body, such as the shoulders, arms, hands and fingers in the form of an acute shooting pain, known as cervico brachialgia. This type of pain is often caused by compression of the nerve root as it exits the cervical spine. The key to delivering an effective treatment plan, including an effective rehabilitation path, is a full and effective diagnosis of the symptoms to identify the exact underlying cause.

Acute & Chronic Neck Pain Treatment

Non-operative treatments, such as the ones provided at MVMT Sports Chiropractic, are frequently very successful in aiding in the vast majority of acute and chronic neck pain cases when addressed in an effective manner. Therapeutic sessions use manual therapies, dry needling and joint manipulation to relax muscles around the spine and other effected areas where tension often develops. This is combined with targeted exercises that strengthen the postural muscles in the neck, shoulder and thoracic regions to further aid in the patient’s recovery.

Identifying poor posture is a crucial part of treatment, as unidentified issues can disrupt rehabilitation and delay recovery. Here, the patient can play an active part, as small details of lifestyle (such as how they sit), can explain why pain persists over weeks or months. To relieve symptoms and prevent pain recurrence, exercises, stretches, ergonomics and changes to training and daily routine may be recommended to alleviate symptoms and prevent recurrence of pain.

Neck Pain FAQs

The most common causes of neck pain include: 

  • Poor posture: Spending long hours with your head in a forward position. This is often caused by looking down at a laptop or phone screen, which causes strain on your neck muscles.
  • Muscle strain or injury: Neck muscles can be strained or injured from overuse, sudden impact or poor repetitive motion.
  • Pinched nerve: A nerve in the neck may be pinched by a herniated disc. This may result in numbness or tingling in your hands or arms.
  • Prolonged stress: All forms of stress can cause tension or pain in the neck, while also impacting other major muscle groups.
  • Trauma & Injury: Physical injury or trauma from a sporting activity.

While all adults will experience neck pain at one point in their lives, some signs may indicate that your neck pain requires immediate medical attention.

Here are some immediate signs to look out for:

  • Persistent sharp or strenuous pain along your neck.
  • Prolonged headaches and fevers, accompanied by neck pains.
  • Difficulty moving your neck or having your neck in a stiff or locked position.
  • If your neck pain is accompanied by constant and severe fatigue, it could be a sign of a cancer-related issue.
  • Experiencing weak or numbness in the arms may indicate a pinched nerve or a spinal cord injury.

As a health precaution, we advise you to seek professional treatment if you think your neck pain is serious. While neck pain is a symptom and not a disease, it can lead to other serious health problems if left untreated. 

Some diseases or conditions that may result from severe prolonged neck pain include cervical osteoarthritis, cervical stenosis, cervical herniated disc, constant migraines and other types of chronic body pain.

We recommend seeking professional treatment for your neck pain as soon as possible. 

Most adults who suffer from neck pains are easily manageable if treated early. We aim to ensure you receive proper treatment before your symptoms or conditions worsen. Proper diagnosis and treatment can help prevent further complications and improve your overall quality of life.
