Neck Pain Relief in Murfreesboro

Morter Chiropractic Neck Pain Relief in Murfreesboro

Neck pain, headaches, migraines, upper back pain, shoulder pain, and even carpal tunnel syndrome can be tied to spinal misalignments in the neck vertebrae. After all, this is the most vulnerable and flexible area of your spine. It’s also the same spot where your brain connects to the spinal cord, which delivers messages through your nervous system to the rest of your body. It plays such an important role in your health that you should never ignore neck pain. Schedule an appointment with the neck pain chiropractor Murfreesboro trusts—Dr. Josh Morter—for natural, drug-free neck pain relief that lasts.

What Causes Neck Pain?

Unlike the rest of your spine, which is supported by your ribcage and a lot of core musculature, the neck has to hold your head up, delicately balanced by an intricate network of vertebrae, ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Any number of things can strain these soft tissues and cause misalignment in the vertebrae, including the following:

Forward head posture

If you spend a lot of time with your head hanging down over your smart phone during the day, your neck has enormous strain on it, just from holding your head at that unnatural angle. Today, we call this “tech neck” and it’s alarmingly common, even for young people to complain of headache problems just because of this posture irregularity.

Neck injuries

Whiplash is by far the most common neck injury, and it can happen as a sports injury, car accident injury, or in any other situation where the head and neck are suddenly whipped back and forth. Symptoms of whiplash can come hours and even days after the injury itself, manifesting as an increase in headaches, migraines, upper back pain, shoulder pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.


Stress can tighten and strain neck muscles, increase the chances of you getting a tension headache, and has all kinds of other negative impacts on your health and posture.
