Have you ever wondered why you deal with so much neck pain? Well, in this video I’m going to walk you through why that might be the case. One of the main causes of neck pain and how you can get out of that cycle. So my name is Dr. Ryan Carlson. I’m a Chiropractic expert right here in Bentonville AR. And today I’m going to show you how a herniated disc could be causing your neck pain.
So between each of the vertebrae in our spine, we actually have kind of a jelly cushion type substance, which is called the disc, and that’s what allows those vertebrae to move back and forth because they need something cushiony between them in order to do so. However, what can happen is maybe it’s due to old trauma, a car accident, a fall, a sports injury.

It can just be from repetitive use over time. What can happen is part of that disc can start to bulge out and then it puts pressure on these nerves that come right out of that area as well. And coincidentally, these nerves right here on the bottom part of the neck. Those are the ones that come out here.
And they of course go right to the muscles of the neck. So if you would have a herniated disc, that’s one of the main causes of neck pain, especially here on the bottom part of the neck, which can present into the bottom part of the neck muscles as well as between those shoulder blades out to the shoulders and can even cause things like numbness and tingling all the way down into the risks, the hands and the fingers.
