Why Does My Neck Hurt?

It’s one of the common questions our San Diego CA chiropractic doctor hears. And the real problem is that finding a suitable source of relief can be quite tricky. Sure, popular pain relievers like naproxen and ibuprofen can work wonders. However, they only last for a short while. 

The worst part is that neck pain can easily set off additional health concerns like back pain, migraines and headaches. 


It all boils down to the most likely root cause of neck pain: an upper cervical spine misalignment.

When you have postural imbalances in your neck, the bones tug on the muscles and other proximal structures like the nerves and brainstem.

Spinal cord tension happens as a result, preventing nerve signals from transmitting to and from your nervous system. The stressed and tense spinal cord CAN NOT regulate the messages coming down from the brain.

Does that sound bad? 

YES! It does. 

If you had a job and your boss couldn’t get the message across on how to complete a task due to poor cell service.

What would that mean? Poor communication!

How do you fix that? Remove the interference with the cell signal. Additionally, you might find it helpful to opt for regular maintenance to minimize the risks of recurring posture problems.
