Neck Pain Q & A

What is neck pain?

Neck pain is a common pain complaint that ranges from mild aches to severe pain and may occur with other symptoms like stiffness, headaches, and difficulty moving the neck and head.


Though not always a serious medical issue, neck pain can significantly affect your quality of life. This is especially true when your neck pain is moderate to severe and occurs regularly, affecting sleep and work. 


The team at 5th Avenue Chiropractic NYC provides advanced spinal correction for neck pain. They take a patient-centered and collaborative approach to care, working closely with you to develop a plan that gives you fast, long-term relief. 

What causes neck pain?

You can develop neck pain from many causes, such as an injury, poor posture, or underlying diseases. The team at 5th Avenue Chiropractic NYC finds that poor posture is an especially common cause of neck pain in tech-savvy New York City. 


Your neck, or cervical spine, supports the weight and movement of your head. Ideally, your head should remain in a neutral position — head balanced in between your shoulders with your eyes looking straight ahead — to reduce strain on the structure of the neck. 


If you spend hours at a time with your head bent down looking at your laptop, smartphone, or tablet, you’re straining the neck, resulting in pain and misalignment. This extra strain on the cervical spine also accelerates degenerative changes and misalignments of the vertebrae.

What happens during a neck pain evaluation?

You can expect a patient-focused neck pain evaluation from the team at 5th Avenue Chiropractic NYC. Before your exam, they listen intently to your story and concerns. They ask detailed questions about your symptoms, daily routine, and medical history.


The team completes an ergonomic workstation assessment, performs a physical exam, and requests X-rays, if necessary, of your spine.
