Neck and Shoulder Pain

Mission Bay Chiropractic

What are the primary causes of neck and shoulder pain?

Neck and shoulder pain can develop for many reasons, but the most common causes include poor posture, repetitive stress, overuse injuries, and carrying or lifting unbalanced loads. Neck and shoulder symptoms can also develop as a result of issues in the back and even the arms, including nerve impingement and localized inflammation, and as we get older, osteoarthritis may cause pain and stiffness that can result in a decreased range of motion.

How does chiropractic care help relieve the symptoms of neck and shoulder pain?

Most musculoskeletal pain occurs at least in part as a result of inflammation that interferes with healthy circulation and normal neural signaling. Chiropractic care uses gently adjustments of the spine to relieve unnatural forces and strains that can cause inflammation, restoring both circulation and neural transmission to help relieve pain not just in the neck and shoulders, but in the arms and upper back as well.

What steps can I take to prevent neck and shoulder pain in the future?

Being more physically active and seeing a chiropractor at the first signs of pain and stiffness are two of the most important things you can do to help relive symptoms before more significant damage occurs. Having your workplace evaluated to identify ergonomic design changes also can help relieve a lot of neck and shoulder issues that develop as a result of poorly designed office spaces. At Mission Bay Chiropractic Care, we've performed on-site work station evaluations for many area clients, including the Department of Labor, Airbnb, iHeartMedia, Github, the Discovery Channel and many other clients, providing them with the guidance they need to keep their workers as healthy as possible and to avoid disabling injuries.
