You may have neck pain from any number of causes. Your neck is the most flexible part of the spine, giving you the ability to move your head in many directions. Unfortunately, the flexibility of your neck and the weight of your head makes it vulnerable to injuries and conditions that cause pain.
Many people have neck pain from poor posture. Keeping your head bent for hours strains the muscles that support the neck. Over time, the ongoing strain may affect the alignment of the neck, causing other problems such as:
Whiplash is also a common cause of neck pain. This acute injury occurs from a sudden back-and-forth head movement, overstretching the ligaments in the neck.
Most causes of neck pain resolve on their own with at-home care and better posture. But you should schedule a neck pain consultation at Revive Spine and Pain Center if your neck pain fails to improve within a few days or worsens.
The team also recommends professional pain management if your neck pain is severe or occurs following an acute injury.
