Neck pain is a common problem affecting millions of Americans and it is one of the top reasons people seek chiropractic care with Your Houston Chiropractors Dr. Gregory Johnson and Dr. Tristan Wendt, who have extensive experience helping patients overcome neck pain.

Types of Neck Pain

There are several types of neck pain, but the most common types are acute and chronic neck pain.

Acute Neck Pain

Patients with acute neck pain often improve on their own through self-care and addressing the cause of neck pain. If acute neck pain does not improve within a few weeks, you can consider non-drug therapies, such as c care or Home Mirror Image Exercises.

Chronic Neck Pain

Neck pain is considered chronic when it persists for three months or longer. Long-term use of pain medication usually does not improve functioning for patients with chronic neck pain. Studies have shown that natural therapies, including chiropractic care, prove beneficial in relieving neck pain. Psychological and social factors also contribute to chronic neck pain. Most patients with chronic neck pain will not become pain-free, so care should be more focused on managing or reducing painful symptoms and improving functions.

  •  Muscle spasms
  •  Fatigue
  •  Depression
  •  Anxiety
  •  Neck stiffness

Causes of Neck Pain

There are several possible causes for neck pain. If left untreated, neck pain can get more serious. Neck pain can possibly be a sign of another condition. This is why it is important to seek professional help for proper diagnosis. Advanced Chiropractic Relief has decades of experience diagnosing patients with neck pain diagnosing neck pain and determining the proper chiropractic care.

One of the most common causes of neck pain for people is repeating the same movements of your neck can strain and harm the bones and nerves in your neck. By continuously repeating those movements, neck pain will only worsen. Even little tasks can pose as a threat to bones and nerves in the neck.
  • Prolonged awkward neck position – This is common among people who use mobile devices
  • Poor posture – If your head is tilted forward for long periods of time, this puts a lot of strain on the neck muscles, tendons, and ligaments, which eventually cause pain
  • Sports injury – Neck pain can be caused by a sports injury resulting from a fall or collision or fall during sports activities
  • Sleeping in the wrong position – Waking up with neck pain is the result of sleeping in an uncomfortable position
  • Repetitive movements – Turning your head in a repetitive motion can lead to pain


When you are constantly stressed, the chronic tension causes your muscles to become sore and weak. Dr. Johnson recommends regular chiropractic, regular exercises and relaxation exercises, such as deep breathing, to de-stress your mind and body.

Vertebral Subluxation

The International Chiropractors Association defines vertebral subluxation as the stress response when spinal bones suffer from improper motion or position, which affects nerve communications between the brain and the body. When there is a disruption, misalignment, or abnormal separation in the position of the vertebrae, it results in debilitating neck pain and inflammation. Read more about Vertebral Subluxation ›

Cervical Herniated Disc

A cervical herniated disc does not always mean that you are going to suffer from neck pain. There are people with herniated or bulging disc who don’t suffer from any painful symptoms. However, there are cases when the cervical herniated disc pinches or presses against a cervical nerve, causing intense and excruciating pain that frequently radiates to other parts of the body.

Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease

As we age, the spinal discs degenerate and lose hydration and the ability to cushion the spinal vertebrae, causing irritation and pain.
