Understanding Neck Pain
Neck pain is common and affects about 8 in 10 people during their lifetime. The pain can feel sharp, throbbing, dull, sore. Not only that, but the ache is often accompanied by other symptoms like stiffness, headaches, jaw pain, shoulder pain, arm pain, and numbness. Neck pain can develop due to poor posture, a sedentary lifestyle, traumatic accidents, repetitive strain, and can affect people of all ages. If the discomfort is left untreated, it can lead to further complications and surgery may be needed to improve your mobility.
Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain can occur due to a variety of causes, such as a muscle strain or ligament sprain. Some common causes of neck pain include the following:
- Degenerative disc disease or disc herniation
- Nerve compression in the neck
While neck pain can sometimes resolve on its own, it can reoccur if the underlying cause of the injury is not addressed.
