Your neck (also known as the cervical spine) is made up of vertebrae that extend from the skull to the upper torso. Cervical disks absorb shock between the bones. The bones, ligaments, and muscles of your neck support your head and allow for motion. Any abnormalities, inflammation, or injury can cause neck pain or stiffness.

Did you know a stiff neck can be a symptom of meningitis? Neck stiffness may also develop as a reaction and result of muscle spasm in various conditions that cause neck pain, including traumatic injuries.

Some people have neck pain that may radiate into the shoulder and arm. This type of pain is often caused by an injury near the root of a spinal nerve. A nerve root injury is sometimes referred to as a “pinched” nerve. The medical term for this condition is cervical radiculopathy.

Neck spasm is a sudden and involuntary contraction, or uncontrollable tightening and shaking, of a muscle in response to strain, overuse, weakness, or muscle pain related to injury or a disorder. In some conditions, such as cervical dystonia, the spasm may cause your head to turn or to jerk.

Since your neck is vital to everyday life, it’s important that you take good care of it. Your Chanhassen neck pain doctor can help figure out what’s wrong with your neck and then use hands-on manipulation to decrease whatever problem is happening at the point(s) of pain.

At Abundant Life Chiropractic, expect your Chanhassen neck pain doctor to help you increase your productivity and energy levels, giving you the freedom to do more. Your doctor will help take away the stiffness, numbness, tingling and tension between your shoulders that’s hampering your daily activities.
