Neck Pain Symptoms And Treatments

If your neck aches after a long day at work, chances are you are experiencing neck pain. Neck pain can be caused by car accidents, old sports injuries, and even an old pillow or bed can contribute to the pain. Many people also have the tendency to bend forward (tucking the chin) while on a computer or texting on a device. This position can stress the joints of the cervical spine and strain the surrounding muscles causing neck pain.

Symptoms

  • difficulty turning the head
  • shooting arm pain or numbness
  • soreness, tightness or stiffness in the neck
