Neck and Shoulder Pain

Pain in the neck or shoulders can also be called upper back pain. It is becoming more and more common as we spend hours each day in front of computers or hunched over smartphones and tablets.

Knots in the neck and shoulders can trigger headaches or cause referred pain in the arms or lower back. Even if they don’t, neck or shoulder pain on its own can be debilitating and interfere with daily life.

Main Street Health offers a variety of products and treatments to alleviate upper back pain.

What are some upper back pain causes?

Some of the most common causes of neck pain are:

  • TMJ

The first step to treating upper back pain is identifying its specific location and cause with an in-depth clinical assessment.
