Causes of Chronic Neck Pain
In many cases, chronic neck pain is initially caused by some form of trauma,resulting in initial pain and inflammation, which then fails to resolve as swiftly as hoped. Although whiplash normally resolves quite rapidly, some patients find that they are still plagued by problems many months or even years after the initial injury occurred. When you make an appointment with us, we will undertake a full assessment and diagnosis process, accurately pin-pointing the cause of your neck pain. Rarely, the patients we see from the Jacksonville, FL, area may experience chronic neck pain may be due to a more serious condition; our thorough assessment ensures any issues that require further attention are picked up.
