This is because the inflamed joints and the compressed or irritated nerves in your neck can affect the nerves (brachial plexus) that travel into your arm and shoulder area.
Not everyone with neck pain also develops shoulder and arm pain, but if it occurs, this condition is called a pinched nerve or cervical radiculopathy.
Yes. Neck pain and stiff neck are caused by various factors, all of which your chiropractors are trained to understand and treat.

Some patients see immediate improvement and then discontinue their chiropractic care. Unfortunately, some of these patients suffer a relapse since their soft tissue and muscles have not had time to heal fully, and they may need to come back for our neck pain treatment in Indian Land and Fort Mill.
However, patients that have discovered the benefits of chiropractic care, or those who are experiencing degenerative changes in their spine, will make periodic check-ups a worthwhile investment. Our chiropractors at Carolina Chiropractic & Wellness can make recommendations, but how long you’ll need or benefit from chiropractic care is up to you.
