What might be causing my neck pain?
There can be a number of different contributing factors that are related to neck pain. For example, if you have been in an accident or slipped and fell then your neck muscles could have been strained. It could also be related to posture, perhaps from working at a desk or on a computer. Holding your neck in a single position for an extended period of time such as while driving a vehicle or working at a computer can create and increase pain in the neck. Osteoarthritis is another common cause of neck pain. Emotional stress or even sleeping behaviors can be causes of pain the neck. In some cases, neck pain can be related to a more serious issue such as rheumatoid arthritis, meningitis, or cancer.
What symptoms may you experience?
Common symptoms of neck pain may include tightness in the neck muscles that can lead to muscle spasms. Headaches can be another symptom associated with neck pain because of the tightening of the muscles in both the neck and head. You may also experience limited range of motion with your neck and head.
