What Causes Neck Pain?
Most neck pain is caused by stress, not a serious issue. There are three types of stress that each person experiences daily; these include physical stress, emotional stress, and chemical stress. Emotional stress is the grief, worry, or sadness that you experience due to work, children, or money issues. When you have these feelings, your muscles that are located in your back and neck tighten and clench unconsciously. Physical stress can occur from overuse of the same muscles, sleeping in an awkward position, or maintaining an improper posture which can also cause problems in your neck. Chemical stress is caused by eating or inhaling toxins such as, preservatives, tobacco, or medications. These toxins can have harmful effects on your nervous system functioning properly and on your muscle tone development.
Any of these stresses can cause your neck muscles to contract and puts uncomfortable pressure on the bones that exist there. This pressure can push the vertebrae out of position and cause problems with your nervous system and create pain. If your pain persists it may become chronic. A few other causes of neck pain might include, misalignments in the main neck joint, bone spurs cause by arthritis, bulging discs, or disc degeneration. In all of these instances, the nervous system is interfered with and irritation and pain happen in the neck.
Traditional Treatments for Chronic Neck Pain
Traditional treatments used by medical professionals to treat chronic neck pain focus on managing the pain.
