Neck Pain Relief SpecialistWhether your neck pain is the result of a car accident, work injury or sleeping in an awkward position, leading chiropractor Dr. Scott Evans of VIDA Chiropractic Studio, located in Denver, Colorado, offers effective, all-natural relief and correction, by remedying the underlying musculoskeletal and/or neurological cause.
The Denver Chiropractor for Neck Pain and Whiplash Injury Relief
Your neck doesn’t have a rib cage and core muscles to protect it, yet it supports your 10 to 11-pound head, providing flexibility for you to turn and look around. It’s also the portal your spinal cord uses to travel to the rest of your body. So, neck injury can also cause symptoms in other areas if not properly treated. Fortunately, neck pain responds well to the natural treatment our Denver chiropractor provides. Whether you suffer whiplash from a car accident, poor ergonomics at your desk or any other cause, schedule an appointment with Dr. Evans for neck pain relief.
Whiplash from a Car Accident or Neck Pain from Poor Posture?
Many conditions and injuries can cause neck pain, so our chiropractor thoroughly diagnoses your condition to apply the right chiropractic adjustments for lasting relief and recovery. These are just a few of the most common causes of neck pain:
- Whiplash—A sudden sports and car accident injury; quick, jolting head movements injure neck muscles, ligaments, tendons and discs, causing vertebral subluxations and pinched nerves. See your chiropractor immediately if you think you have whiplash because it could save you years of pain! But even if you have suffered for years, Dr. Evans can still provide relief, so schedule an appointment.
- Herniated Disc—Poor posture or sudden accidents (like whiplash) can injure discs in the neck, causing them to pinch nerves.
- Cervical Stenosis—Degenerative facet joints or herniated cervical discs narrow the space where the spinal cord can travel through the neck, causing radiating pain in the arms and legs.
- Poor Posture—Looking down at your mobile device, sleeping on the wrong pillow, poor ergonomics at work, incorrect form while exercising, etc. can all mis-align vertebrae, press cervical discs, pinch nerves and strain muscles.
Fortunately, chiropractic care provides natural, successful treatment that addresses all these issues.
Denver Chiropractic Care for Neck Pain and Injury Recovery
Our chiropractor gently restores proper neck vertebrae alignment, releasing pinched nerves and taking pressure off of cervical discs, muscles and soft tissues. Then your nervous system can properly direct healing resources without interruption and provide natural neck pain relief and injury recovery.

Neck Pain Q&A
Why is neck pain so prevalent?
The neck, also called the cervical spine, is composed of 7 small vertebrae, intervertebral discs, joints, the spinal cord, 8 nerve roots, ligaments, veins, and 32 muscles. Together these elements must support the head (which weighs an average of 15 pounds), as well as, facilitate its 90-degree range of movement in nearly every direction. That’s a lot to ask of such a delicate structure. Between the neck’s weight-bearing duty and required flexibility, it’s extremely susceptible to pain and injury.
What are the most common causes of neck pain?
The most common causes of neck pain fall into one of these main categories:
- Trauma, among the most common types, is whiplash sustained in a rear-end car accident, but trauma can also include sports injuries and other types of accidents.
- Poor posture and ergonomics, which can range from chronic texting (dubbed “text neck”) to hunching over a computer all day at the office.
- Degenerative conditions, including such disorders as osteoarthritis and degenerative disc disease.
How does Dr. Evans address neck pain?
The first step is a total examination to determine the underlying cause of the problem. From here, Dr. Evans devises a personalized plan that can include one or more of the following modalities:
- Specific spinal adjustments.
- Specially-designed at home exercises.
- Ergonomic recommendations.
- Postural assessment and recommendations.
