What Is Neck Pain?

Having neck pain on a regular basis can significantly interfere with your daily activities and impact on your wellbeing. Neck pain can be classed as acute, lasting from days to six weeks, or chronic, causing pain for many months or years depending on the cause.

When patients visit our Bristol clinic our chiropractors and spinal therapists will carry out a thorough examination to determine the root cause of their neck pain and help them find relief.

Symptoms in patients can include: a sharp pain in one spot; stiffness or soreness; a headache; tingling, numbness or weakness that extends to arms or fingers; and reduced mobility in the neck.

What Are the Causes of Neck Pain?

Neck pain is a common symptom of many differed medical conditions and injuries. Some patients come to the clinic because they feel locked into a position after sleeping awkwardly, others have been suffering for a long time with no idea why.

Common causes of neck pain that we see and treat at Reco Spinal Centre:

  • Trauma or Whiplash injury: An injury can damage ligaments, muscles, joints, discs or nerve roots in the spinal cord, leading to neck pain.
  • Pinched, Trapped or Compressed Nerve: Pain can be caused due to surrounding tissue such as bone, cartilage, muscle or tendons putting pressure on a nerve in the area of the neck.
  • Aging: As people get older parts of the spine can deteriorate and degenerate. Conditions such as osteoarthritis, a herniate disc or pinched nerve are more common in older patients.
  • Physical Strain: Poor posture, strenuous activities or repetitive motions can cause neck pain.
  • Mental Stress: People experiencing stress and anxiety can cause a build-up of tension and a tightening of muscles in the neck area, leading to pain and stiffness.

Treatment for Neck Pain

Some forms of neck pain can be relieved and resolved in a few days by using anti-inflammatory drugs and hot and cold compresses. Other more persistent cases require a professional chiropractor or spinal therapist.

  • Spinal manipulation, stretching and mobilisation of muscles and joints

Prevention of Neck Pain

Usually, the best way to prevent neck pain is to practise good posture and consider any repetitive actions that can be changed or avoided. If neck pain is a result of repetitive strain injury, our experts will work with a patient to establish the cause and advise on ways to prevent the injury reoccurring in the future. This may be as simple as addressing the set-up of your work station in your office.

Other methods of prevention include doing regular exercises and stretches that build strength in certain muscles, improve joint mobilisation and reduce tension. Stress reduction techniques are important for avoiding future neck pain in patients that suffer from stress and anxiety.
