Neck pain is a form of pain that typically occurs from the top of your shoulders and goes to the bottom of your head. There are a lot of symptoms that can be either mild or severe and may limit the range of motion on your neck.
The Common Causes And Injuries
When it comes to the causes, the most common one is the wear and tear of tissues and joints as you age - however, there are many indirect causes to neck pain. Another common cause of neck pain are the neck muscles that are strained or pulled from the poor posture or an awkward sleeping position. Over time, the muscles recover and the pain disappears.
However, the normal wear and tear that causes neck pain or arthritis can lead to injuries, bone and joint pain in the neck as well as nerve compression in the area which causes people to immediately seek neck pain treatment. Another thing worth mentioning is that the weaker or more degenerated a tissue or joints in the neck are, the more susceptible the neck is to injury. Age is also a factor that stimulates neck pain and increases the wear and tear on the vertebrae, discs, muscles and joints which leads to neck pain and arthritis.
