Neck Pain


Neck pain can result from abnormalities in the bones, muscles, ligaments, and nerves of the spine.  The pain can be mild and annoying or it can be severe and unbearable.  Many cases of neck pain are caused by muscle strain, a tearing injury to the muscle.  It often occurs with muscle overuse when the muscle become fatigued and eventually strained.  Repeatedly overusing muscles can result in chronic neck pain.


Since the neck is so flexible it is vulnerable to injury.  Motor vehicle accidents, contact sports, and falls may result in neck pain.  Rear-ended collisions often result in whiplash injuries, stretching the tissues of the neck beyond its normal limits.  Neck pain can also result from arthritic changes.  Wear and tear on the joints can cause stiffness and pain.  Cervical disc changes can also occur.  Less common causes of neck pain include tumors, infections, and congenital deformities of vertebrae.
