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. A Pensacola chiropractor has training just like any other medical physician to determine that source of pain. Additionally, they will tell you if it is a chiropractic problem or if you need a referral elsewhere. Typical causes of neck pain are usually from injuries, poor posture, recent accidents and/or untreated previous accidents.
