Likely Causes of Neck Pain

Some of the most common causes of neck pain can be as simple as a tight/strained muscle, a pinched nerve or degenerative arthritis.  Of course, there are other structures in the neck or health conditions that can trigger neck pain and a chiropractor is trained just like any other medical physician to determine that source of pain and if it is a chiropractic problem or should be referred out.  Typical causes of neck pain can be associated with injury, poor posture, recent accidents and/or untreated previous accidents.
