Neck Pain

Neck Pain | Orofacial Pain TreatmentNeck pain affects two-thirds of the population at some point in their lives.  Neck pain, although felt in the neck, can be caused by numerous other spinal issues. Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back. Joint disruption in the neck and upper back also creates pain.

The top three joints in the neck allow for most movement of your neck and head. The lower joints in the neck and those of the upper back create a supportive structure for your head to sit on. If this support system is affected adversely, then the muscles in the area will tighten, leading to neck pain.  Neck pain may also arise from many other physical and emotional health issues.

Upper cervical problems are commonly associated with frontal tension type headaches and pain behind the eyes. Patients with forward head posture can develop problems in the upper cervical region, shoulders, and throat area. Difficulty swallowing is seen in some patients with dental malocclusion, especially with a history of anterior open bite.
