What causes upper back and neck pain?

We find that upper back and neck pain is most commonly caused by poor posture, and structural imbalances of the spine. Put simply, structural imbalances are a ‘twisting’ of the spine. This occurs over time as your body compensates for old injuries and bad postural habits.

This twisting places increased pressure on muscles, ligaments, nerves and joints around the spine. This increased pressure is often responsible for causing pain. It also causes forward head posture.

Forward head posture is when your head sits forward of your shoulders. The further forward your head, the more pressure is placed on the joints of your neck.

A sedentary lifestyle, large amounts of time sitting each day, physical trauma (such as an automobile accidents), and high stress levels are all contributing factors for structural imbalances of the spine and poor posture.

There can be other, more serious causes of neck pain, which is why it is important for us to perform a comprehensive examination to determine if we are the right people to help you. If not, we will be sure to refer you to where you need to be.

How can Absolute Chiropractic in Rio Rancho help you with neck pain?

Pain medications are commonly used to deal with neck pain, but unfortunately this approach only masks the symptoms rather than fix the underlying cause.

Our focus is correcting the cause of your neck pain, so you can experience lasting results and great health, without the nasty side effects of long-term pain medication use. We do this through improving your spinal alignment and posture.
