What Causes Neck Pain?

The causes of neck pain can arise from a variety of factors ranging from poor posture to spinal disc injuries. No pain in the neck is the same, and so it is characterised based on the following origins:

Neck Joints and Muscle

The spine’s ability to move in multiple directions is dependent on the health of the bones and joints. You’ll find discs, facet joints and other articulating joints throughout the spine and the body as a whole. These joints, as with any joints in our bodies, can become irritated and inflamed and result in a limited range of motion and painful head and neck movements.

Neck stiffness can lead to further complications if left untreated. The muscles in the neck are complex and carry out many functions. When interrupted, the neck muscles can weaken and spasm, causing neck muscle pain.


Whiplash is classed as a neck injury due to forceful, rapid back-and-forth movement of the neck that has resulted from an accident (motor vehicle accident, sports injury, or fall). The muscles in the neck region may strain and lead to sharp pain when making any sudden movements. Other symptoms include tenderness, headache, tingling, fatigue, tenderness and loss of range of motion.

Neck Nerve Pain

Nerve pain as a result of nerve compression can be caused by a slipped disc (when your cervical disc slips out of position and presses on spinal nerves), having high blood pressure and many other conditions. Viruses or infections that affect our nervous system can also cause nerve pain in your neck.

Neck Arthritis

Otherwise known as cervical spondylosis or osteoarthritis, it is a condition that can affect the joints in the neck, causing chronic pain that can be resolved with chiropractic treatment. The pain is classed as chronic when it has lasted for longer than 3 months.

Pain following surgery

Up to 25% of neck and back surgeries can result in postoperative pain that is persistent and can be troublesome. A carefully constructed treatment plan from a chiropractor can help alleviate this type of pain.

What Neck Pain Treatments Are Available?

Pain in the neck can often be treated using conservative methods such as medication (anti-inflammatory, muscle relaxants, and painkillers) and plenty of rest. However, if these methods aren’t working, you should seek treatment from a specialist. People have found chiropractic techniques especially helpful in alleviating back and neck pain.

Our allied health professionals will provide you with bespoke treatment plans, which will include a series of strengthening exercises designed to alleviate pain, stress and stiffness.

Some of the most frequently asked questions regarding neck pain treatment are answered below.

Who gets pain in their neck?

Pain in the neck can occur in anyone, regardless of age. It can occur through forced trauma such as an accident, nerve damage as a result of an infection or misplacement of a spinal disc, and psychological causes.

Can neck pain be cured?

Neck pain can be cured depending on the origin of the pain. Our team will devise the most appropriate treatment plans for you to ensure we tackle the root of the cause. Neck pain can be managed well with treatment and recommended exercises.

Do stress and anxiety cause pain in your neck?

When stressed or anxious, our body tends to tense and cause a stiff neck. If sustained for prolonged periods, the neck can become painful.

How can I permanently relieve neck pain?

Depending on the origin of your pain, a permanent solution may be as easy as reducing stress and carrying out regular exercises. For more severe cases, surgery may be required.
