Today’s modern lifestyle entails hours of desk work and driving which can greatly damage the flexibility and functionality of the neck, and therefore, it is not surprising to know that neck pain is the second most common musculoskeletal condition that affects people of all ages.
At HealthFirst Spine & Wellness, we provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to patients who are suffering from upper back and neck pain due to any reason, and are facing trouble performing everyday tasks due to restricted movement of the affected joints. With chiropractic care for neck pain, we help patients with a sedentary lifestyle avoid musculoskeletal injuries and live a healthy life.
What Causes Upper Back and Neck Pain?
The neck is one of the most unique structures of the body. It has amazing flexibility, a wide range of motion, and the strength to support the weight of your head with very little muscular support. However, the complex mechanics and structure that are responsible for the amazing functionality of the neck also make it more vulnerable to injuries. From nutritional deficiencies to poor posture and repetitive strain, all can cause upper back and neck pain and restrict the mobility of this joint.
Some of the most common causes and risk factors of upper back and neck pain include:
- Sedentary lifestyle
- Strenuous exercises
- Sitting for long hours
- Muscular strain or injury
- Joint inflammation
- Herniated spinal disc
- Poor posture
- Vitamin D deficiency
