Neck pain has many causes such as emotional stress, sitting at the computer, whiplash, bulging disc, and arthritis. The cervical spine contains a very high concentration of nerve fibers. These nerve fibers are controlling may functions such as our sight, hearing, smell, our upper arm, neck and head strength. Many of the nerves of the neck control have direct connections to a portion of the brain that controls our balance, coordination, pain perception, and our emotions. When bones of our neck become misaligned or locked, all of the above structures (and many more) can become affected. Neck pain happens to be the most common condition that arises. Chiropractors are trained in the detection and correction of neck misalignments.
