How To Relieve Neck Pain

Do you have a sharp pain in your neck that won’t go away?

In some cases, neck pain is a minor hiccup in your day that may resolve itself within a few days. But for more severe cases, neck pain can require a visit to see a specialist.

To better understand neck pain and its root causes, here’s some helpful information to consider from your Olathe chiropractors.

What Causes Neck Pain?

There are a variety of reasons you may be experiencing neck pain. Let’s take a look at the most common.


If you experienced a fall, car or sports related accident, chances are your ligaments are misaligned. This type of injury related neck pain may feel stiff and sharp.

Muscle Strain

Muscle strain in your neck can be a common source for pain. This can happen due to:

  • Sleeping in a weird position.
  • Having poor posture.
  • Working at your desk for too long.
  • Moving your neck too fast.

Health Conditions

In some cases, an underlying medical condition can cause severe pain. Conditions that may cause neck pain include:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis
  • Osteoporosis
