Neck Pain is a prevalent condition characterized by discomfort or pain in the neck region, which may extend into the shoulders, upper back, or arms. It can be caused by various factors, including muscle strains, poor posture, whiplash injuries, herniated discs, or underlying medical conditions like arthritis. Poor ergonomics, prolonged computer use, stress, and sleeping in an awkward position are frequent contributors to neck pain. Neck pain can range from mild and annoying to severe and debilitating.
Treatments will vary based on the cause and type of neck pain. Accurate diagnosis and personalized treatment are essential for effectively managing symptoms and getting back to doing what you love.
