Many people experience neck pain. In most cases, it is caused by poor posture, overuse or normal wear and tear. OPTIMAL Pain & Regenerative Medicine, serving patients in the Arlington, Fort Worth and Dallas, Texas area, discusses some of the most common neck pain causes.
Your neck, or cervical spine, is made up of vertebras that extend from the skull to the upper torso. The cervical discs absorb shock between the bones as the neck and body moves. The bones, ligaments and muscles support your head and allow motion of your neck and head.
In the majority of cases, neck pain is not a serious condition and can be relieved at home within a few days. In some cases, the pain may be prolonged and a pain management specialist may be needed to help alleviate the pain.
Most neck pain causes are related to repeated or prolonged neck movements such as holding the head in a forward or odd position while working, watching TV, driving or talking on the phone.
These neck pain causes often improve with time.
Risk factors for neck pain that can be controlled include not placing the neck in an awkward position, eliminating stress, increasing physical activity and not using tobacco or drugs.
