Many different issues can cause neck pain. Here are some of the most notable causes:

• Injuries from car accidents, sports/activities, or slip-and-falls
• Issues with spinal discs in the neck or upper back
• Arthritis in the neck, back or shoulders
• Poor posture at work or home
• Inadequate support while sleeping
• Carrying uneven or heavy loads
• Diseases of the spine, nerves, or muscles in the neck or upper back

How do we diagnose Neck pain?

The first step is always a thorough history, we need to know what you've been through to get you where you want.    

Neck pain is tricky because it can originate in your neck,  upper back, or even your shoulders. So the next thing we want to do  is locate the source of your neck pain.

We do this by conducting a hands-on examination. After we identify  the movements that are causing your pain, we’ll examine the muscles and  ligaments in the affected area.

If necessary, we’ll use Digital X-Ray to take pictures of  your neck. These images can be used to confirm a diagnosis or rule out  causes before finalizing a treatment plan.
