Neck Pain Q & A
What causes neck pain?
Neck pain can have a number of causes or associated factors, such as:
- Persistently carrying your bag on the same shoulder
- Trauma or injury from accidents
- Cervical spondylosis
- Emotional stress
- Poor posture
- Whiplash, commonly from a car accident
- Herniated or bulging discs
Your joints can also become worn down and painful over time due to aging and certain other factors, causing degenerative disc disease.
Neck pain might be caused or exacerbated by overuse of the muscles in the neck area or inflammation of the tendons, ligaments, muscles, or bones.
If your neck pain is the result of tension or strain, it might subside within a few days. Neck pain is considered chronic if it lasts for several weeks or longer.
How is neck pain diagnosed?
To diagnose the cause of neck pain, your Throgs Neck Multi Care, P.C. provider first discusses your family and medical history and your current symptoms.
They might suggest imaging or testing, such as an X-ray, MRI, or blood work to determine the levels of inflammation and other important information about your health.
Your provider assesses your mobility and range of motion and how far you can move your head from side to side and forward and backward. Your provider also checks for tenderness, numbness, and muscle weakness in your neck and shoulder area.
How is neck pain treated?
For neck pain, you could try alternating an ice and heat pack, warm showers, massage, certain exercises, soft neck collars, and other assistive neck devices. You can also try improving your posture, stretching, and watchful waiting.
