Misconceptions about Neck Pain

Many people think that neck pain is caused by things like tight muscles, muscle aches, weak muscles or sore muscles. In some cases, this may be true and chiropractic care can address these issues with treatment and corrective exercises.

Another misconception people make is that you must have had an injury for neck pain to happen. Mostly, lifestyle habits are involved.
