Neck Pain

Specialists in Treating Neck Pain in Bellingham, WA

The neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. The cervical spine supports the full weight of your head which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.

What Causes Neck Pain?

Due to its mechanics, the neck is vulnerable to pain and damage. Long periods of sitting, frequent, repetitive movements, being knocked on the head or body, accidents, and even regular aging will have a harmful impact on your neck.

Almost 15% of Americans report having neck pain at least once a year for a range of causes, such as:

  • Arthritis
  • Muscle strain
  • Stenosis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Vertebral factures
  • Degerative disc disease
  • Whiplash
