What causes neck pain?
The most common cause of neck pain is an injury to the muscles or ligaments in your neck—this includes any sudden twisting or jerking. Trauma, degenerative diseases, spur formation and improper posture can also cause severe neck pain.
What are symptoms of neck pain?
You might feel a knot, stiffness or severe pain in your neck. This pain can spread to your shoulders, upper back or arms. You may also not be able to move your head or neck without discomfort.
How is neck pain treated?
Treating neck pain depends on whether your neck pain is caused by activities, an injury or another medical condition. For basic neck pain, you can treat it on your own with anti-inflammatory medicine or pain relievers in addition to using a heating pad or a warm shower. For more chronic neck pain, you may benefit from Active Release Technique (ART), chiropractic adjustments and physical rehabilitation stretches and exercises will usually alleviate and resolve all neck pain symptoms. Also, you might need prescription medications such as oral steroids, corticosteroid injections or surgery.
