Chiropractor Neck 19061

Neck pain isone of the most common complaints by people seeking out chiropractic treatment. Neck discomfort may be caused by an acute trauma, a chronic condition or microtrauma. The following must be considered:

  • Did the neck pain start after a specific injury and if so how long ago?
  • Have the symptoms changed over time?
  • Is it worse with movement?
  • Does the pain radiate to the head, shoulders, back or down the arm?
  • How severe is the pain, what does it feel like and how long does it last?
  • Does anything make it better or worse?


With all neck pain—no matter what the cause—the pain itself tells us that there is some kind of problem in the functioning of the different parts of the spine. Dysfunction in the neck is serious as it can lead to many other problems related to:

  • Shoulder, arm and hand 
  • Headaches
  • Back

Interestingly, most patients who present with chronic complaints exhibit signs of neck (cervical) dyfunction even in the absense of neck symptoms.
