The neck has a significant amount of motion and supports the weight of the head.
However, because it is less protected than the rest of the spine, the neck can be vulnerable to injury and disorders that produce pain and restrict motion. For many people, neck pain is fortunately a temporary condition that disappears with time. Others need medical diagnosis and treatment to relieve their symptoms.
In most cases, neck pain is caused by muscle strain or sprain of soft tissues ligaments,tendons. This type of injury can also be caused by a sudden force, such as a whiplash injury. Other causes of neck pain may include cervical osteoarthritis, herniated or slipped disc, and arthritis.
Chronic neck pain can be severely debilitating and can radiate to the upper back, shoulder blade and cause headaches. These symptoms, along with tight neck muscles and stiff joints, can make even the simplest of daily activities painful.
