Pain in the neck is a common symptom that is experienced of variable causes. Other medical conditions may also contribute to neck pain. Tenderness, pain and spasm on the neck may be common.


Neck pain is often referred as cervical pain. Treatment for neck pain is often pattern according to what caused the condition. It is important to make an accurate diagnosis in order to prevent recurrent neck pain symptom to occur.

Contributing to neck pain is improper position while sleeping. The pain is usually self remitting. Neck pain may be relieved with rest and massage when it is caused by improper posture. Stiffness may occur and correction of posture helps relieve neck pain.


Injury and trauma may also cause neck pain with underlying conditions that could aggravate the condition such as when fracture or slipped disc occurs. Conditions such as cervical spondylosis, ankylosing spondylitis and spondylolisthesis may cause neck pain.


The degenerative process of the tissues, disc and vertebra of the cervical spine in cervical spondylosis resulting from the wear and tear may harbor the growth of bone spurs that could impinge the nerves passing through the cervical vertebra. This may be brought about by aging too.


Impingement or entrapment of nerves along the cervical area may result to neurological symptoms that come with the neck pain such as numbness and tingling sensation along the nerve pathway of the impinged nerve. This condition is called cervical radiculopathy that may be caused by protruding disc, arthritis, and synovial cyst. You can also get impingement of other nearby joints such as your shoulder. Shoulder pain can be just as debilitation as neck pain.


Neck pain may also be caused by muscular strain on the neck. Spasm may occur and stiffness. Everyday stress, poor posture, excessive tension on the neck muscles all contribute to a tensed muscle on the neck accompanied with muscle tightness.

Whiplash injury may also cause neck pain which occurs with traumatic accidents that cause a sudden forward and backward force on the neck. neck movement may be difficult with severe pain and spasm.


Cervical myofascial pain also causes muscular pain that is tender to pressure. It may be brought about by insomnia, psychogenic stress and depression. Calcification on the ligaments and tendons on the cervical vertebra may result to hardened tissues. Some may not feel any symptoms but neck pain with joint stiffness is fairly common to some.


The aging process may also predispose one to neck pain due to the susceptibility of the cervical spine to degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis where there is cartilage degeneration, spinal stenosis that involves the narrowing of the cervical canal or passageway for the nerves thereby compressing it.


Oftentimes pain in the neck may also result to the involvement of the shoulder and the arms. Muscular pain of the shoulder may be transmitted from the neck down to the shoulder and arm. This is highly significant with nerve involvement along the cervical area.


Exercise on the neck consisting of motion exercise, resistance exercise and stretching exercise together with postural correction and massage are helpful in relieveing pain in the neck.
