Poor posture, prolonged desk and computer work, driving, repetitive lifting and manual work can all cause neck pain and stiffness.
Neck problems can also arise as a result of an accident or fall.
All of these can lead to problems with the muscles, ligaments and joints in the neck. This can interfere with their function, and in turn may irritate the nerves and cause shoulder and arm pain.
In addition, injuries resulting from car accidents may damage joints, muscles, ligaments and nerves, resulting in symptoms including dizziness, light-headedness, neck pain, headaches, arm pain, poor concentration or fatigue.
Chiropractic treatment and care can help to restore the function in these structures, thereby alleviating pain and stiffness.
