Neck pain occurs when elements in your neck, upper spine, or skull are damaged, irritated, or otherwise not functioning correctly.
You can suffer from muscle pain in your upper shoulders and neck, nerve pain related to an issue in your upper (cervical) spine, or whiplash after an auto accident or other sudden physical trauma.
While mild neck pain is extremely common, severe or lingering neck pain can require professional treatment to relieve it. Neck pain may also indicate an underlying condition that must be treated to relieve your symptoms.
Often, neck pain results from wear-and-tear on the delicate components of your upper spine, which have to bear the weight of your head and maintain a full range of motion. Both spinal degeneration and muscle damage due to wear-and-tear can result in neck pain, especially as you get older.
Injuries can also result in acute or lingering neck pain, especially if your injury included your head suddenly shifting forward or backward, as in a whiplash injury following a car crash.
Another common cause of neck pain is poor posture. When you don’t hold your body in proper alignment, the weight and pressure of your upper body on your neck can become harmful, resulting in further misalignment and ongoing discomfort. If you work at a desk, bend over frequently, or hunch your back, you can have a heightened risk for neck pain.
In order to address neck pain, it may be necessary to restore the condition of your neck and engage in retraining practices to keep the issue from recurring.
