She can determine what’s causing your neck pain and recommend suitable treatments for it. Just talk to your neck pain Oakbrook Terrace, IL specialist today!

What’s Causing My Neck Pain?

The neck is very flexible and is responsible for supporting your head’s weight, so it is susceptible to conditions and injuries that restrict motion and cause pain. In this light, common neck pain causes typically include the following:

  • Muscles Strains: This involves overuse of the neck muscles, such as spending prolonged hours hunching over your smartphone or computer. Even seemingly harmless things like gritting your teeth or reading in bed could strain your delicate neck muscles.
  • Injuries: Auto collisions cause whiplash injuries that happen when your head is jerked forcefully backward and forward.
  • Nerve Compression: Bone spurs or herniated disks in your neck’s vertebrae place pressure on nerves that branch out from your spine.
  • Worn Joints: Like all joints in the body, the neck joints also wear down as you age. For instance, osteoarthritis results in the cartilage between the bones to deteriorate. The body then develops bone spurs that cause pain and impact joint motion.
  • Certain Diseases: These include rheumatoid arthritis, cancer, and meningitis, among others.

  • Headaches
  • Pain that’s worsened when holding the head in one position for extended periods, like when working at a desk or driving

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "My initial reason for seeking chiropractic care was because I was having some back, neck, and shoulder problems. I had seen other chiropractors and achieved no results. This was not the case at The Body Connection. The experience here is very educational in learning how the body works. I am now able to function in a lot less pain. As a result, I am now more active and look at life with more understanding on how to stay healthy."
    Maria H.
  • "I first encountered The Body Connection through Groupon when I came in for a massage. I had a conversation with Dr. Logan and as a result of being treated here, I am now able to do intense workouts, boot camp, and boxing. I have also experienced increased weight loss and now have better posture. Dr. Logan and her staff have been very supportive."

  • "I have been treated by other chiropractors in the past and over the years coming to The Body Connection has been a wonderful experience. I initially came in for lower back and hip pain. As of now, my flexibility has improved and my pain has diminished. I can now walk and stand for longer periods of time. Also doing daily house work isn’t as painful. I feel better after being treated by the doctor. My energy level is increased and it also improves my state of mind."

  • "Prior to meeting the staff of The Body Connection Health and Wellness Center at a Ladies Day Expo, I had no knowledge of chiropractic care. Dr. Logan educated me on how the different issues I was experiencing were connected. As a result of getting treated at this facility, my body feels better. I am now able to sit and ride in a car without feeling the lower back pain and spasms of the past."
