Causes of Neck Pain

Why Am I Experiencing Neck Pain?

Accidents and Injuries

A sudden, forced movement of the neck and head in any direction followed by the "rebound" in the opposite direction is called whiplash.

Other areas than just the neck can be significantly impacted such as joints, ligaments, muscles, and discs, as well.

The most common source of high-impact neck injuries like this is car accidents, especially rear-end collisions.

Aging Factors

There are particular degenerative disorders that can aid in developing chronic neck pain.

These disorders include:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease

These examples directly target the spine and, along with neck pain, can create numbness and tingling in the legs or arms.

The loss of joint movement and misaligned discs adds additional strain to the spine and other joints which can induce aches and pains in other locations, such as the neck.

Day-to-day Factors

Rather than specific high-intensity random moments or inevitable aging that constitutes neck pain, daily habits and factors can lead to neck pain as well.

The critical component is spinal balance.

Particular factors that can attribute to disrupting spinal balance include:

  • Obesity
  • Poor posture
  • Poor sleeping habits
  • Repetitive movements/motions
  • Emotional stress and tension

Neck Pain Due to Auto Accidents

Neck Pain and Car Accidents

Whenever auto accidents occur, it will typically involve a significant amount of force to the driver and other passengers' bodies. This can lead to a lot of aches, pains, and damage.

There's an extensive jerking motion that takes place that can result in neck injuries. These pains can occur to either the spinal discs or the facet joints. The speed and impact that take place aren't ideal for the spinal column.

As a result, aches, pains, cracks, ruptures, fissures, and other ailments can occur.

As we mentioned above, whenever whiplash occurs, you'll likely immediately feel the force of the impact on your back. The neck pain will then move to the back of the neck.

After a car accident, especially a rear-end collision a whiplash injury is very common.

However, you may not experience whiplash pain symptoms immediately.

Long-Term Effects of Whiplash

After an accident, whiplash will immediately start affecting your body.

The severity and longevity of the effects of whiplash heavily depend on the severity of the accident and how soon treatment is received after the accident. 

That is why we stress receiving immediate medical treatment from a whiplash and neck pain specialist after an accident injury.

Long-term symptoms of whiplash include the following: neck pain, severe headaches, consistent fatigue, blurry vision, anxiety, jaw pain, irritability, ringing in the ears, and sometimes numbness in the arms or legs.

Chiropractic Adjustment

Arlington, VA Neck Pain Doctor

If your neck was injured in an auto accident, a chiropractor can perform a manual adjustment of your cervical spine.

By applying light force to the joints in your spine, your chiropractic doctor is able to release pressure by aligning your spine.

This is a noninvasive method with very low risk, yet incredibly successful.

Instrument-Assisted Manipulation

This technique utilizes a hand-held instrument, which allows the doctor to apply force without thrusting into the spine.

Physical Rehabilitation

With physical rehabilitation, neck injury patients will undergo specific stretches and therapy to stabilize your muscles and rehabilitate the injured soft tissues.

Ultrasound

The purpose of ultrasound for a neck pain patient is to send soundwaves that micro-vibrate and heat, thus treat, your soft tissues. 

Ultrasound is also beneficial for alleviating stiffness and pain in patients suffering neck soreness from a personal injury.
