Neck Pain Q&A

What causes neck pain?

Neck pain can stem from various factors, often linked to everyday activities and lifestyle choices. At The Family Wellness Center, Dr. Berlin completes an evaluation to determine the cause of your neck pain. 

He asks where the pain is, when it started, and if it’s worse during certain movements. Some common causes of neck pain are:

Poor posture

Incorrect posture while sitting or standing can strain neck muscles over time, leading to discomfort.

Muscle strain

Overexertion of neck muscles, whether due to prolonged sitting at a desk or engaging in physical activities, may result in pain.


Stress, whether physical or emotional, can manifest as tension in the neck muscles, contributing to pain,stiffness, and misalignment.


Sudden and forceful backward or forward movement of the head, often experienced in car accidents, can cause whiplash, resulting in neck pain.

When should I seek treatment for neck pain?

Knowing when to seek professional help is crucial for prompt care and timely relief. Contact the team at The Family Wellness Center if you experience:

Persistent pain

If neck pain persists for more than a few days, it's advisable to seek professional evaluation.

Limited range of motion

Difficulty moving your neck in all directions could indicate an underlying issue that requires attention.

Radiating pain

Pain that extends into the shoulders or arms may indicate a more complex problem that needs medical intervention.


Chronic headaches associated with neck pain might be a sign of an underlying musculoskeletal issue.
