Common Causes of Neck Pain
We see quite a few cases of neck pain at our RxWellness centers, and patients often come to our chiropractic clinic in desperate need of neck pain and headache relief. Our holistic neck pain treatments in the Virginia, Maryland, and DC Areas can alleviate most types of discomfort and help heal a number of injuries. Most neck pain is caused by one of the following:
- Auto accidents
- Sports injuries
- Work incidents
- Sleeping wrong
- Bad Posture
- Other personal injuries causing whiplash
Whiplash involves torn muscles and tendons in the neck, making it painful to move at all.
Postural issues are quickly rising as the leading cause of neck pain, particularly concerning a condition known as ‘text neck.’ This results from long periods of looking down at your smartphone, computer screen, reading materials or pouring over paperwork at your desk.
Misplaced vertebrae in the neck can cause pain and numbness that radiates down through the shoulders and arms. Our neck and shoulder pain treatments at our chiropractic clinics can correct misalignments to reduce pain and prevent the formation of bone spurs and other problems.

You use your arms for almost everything from driving to cooking and working to playing. When your shoulders are in pain, you are limited to many routine movements. Chronic pain can change your mood too, so reducing your symptoms quickly is essential. Our chiropractors at RxWellness Spine & Health schedule your shoulder pain diagnosis and care immediately to prevent long-term concerns. Some reasons for shoulder pain include:
- Bursitis which is an inflammation of the small fluid-filled bursa sacs within the shoulder joint.
- Tendinitis which can be acute, from overuse, or chronic from arthritis, age or wear and tear.
- Frozen shoulder or shoulder impingement in which the range of motion of the shoulder is limited and extremely painful.
- Displacement in which the shoulder joint is forced out of alignment- our chiropractors can immediately put that back in place.
- Arthritis which can accompany swelling and inflammation.
