Head & Neck Pain

Head & Neck Pain Treatment in Kansas City

Neck Pain can be caused by stress, muscular tension, lifestyle factors, poor posture, disc irritation, and irritated nerves.

Neck pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including muscular tension, poor posture, disc irritation, arthritis, or joint irritation. Oftentimes, inefficient stabilizing strategies are a contributing cause of neck pain, which can lead to the over-activation of muscles in the chest, shoulders, and neck. This can then lead to localized pain in the neck, shoulder, and in some cases, down the arm and hand.

Symptoms of Neck Pain

Neck pain can present in a variety of ways. Some common symptoms include:
  • Generalized dull achy pain in the neck
  • Shooting pain traveling from the neck into the arm and hand
  • Decreased neck range of motion
  • Headaches
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Weakness of the arm and hand
