Generally, neck pain is defined as discomfort in any of the structures in the neck. These include the muscles, bones (vertebrae), and the disks between the bones. Usually, everyday activities are to blame for the cause. Such activities include bending over a desk for hours, poor posture while watching TV or reading, having your computer monitor positioned too high or too low, and sleeping in an uncomfortable position. If you are bothered by neck pain, please give Dr. Kent Carlomagno of Summit Chiropractic Health and Longevity Center a call to discuss your treatment options.
At Summit Chiropractic Health and Longevity Center, Dr. Kent Carlomagno will perform a physical exam and ask about your neck pain, including how often it occurs and how much it hurts. When your neck is sore, you may have difficulty moving it, especially turning to one side. Many people describe this as having a stiff neck. If neck pain involves nerves, you may feel numbness, tingling, or weakness in your arm, hand, or elsewhere.
