Common Injuries Causing Neck Pain


Neck pain is any pain experienced at the base of the skull down into the neck. Most people experience this pain at some point in their lives. The pain may feel minor or extreme and extend to the shoulders, arms, or upper back. Our necks are prone to various injuries that can cause immense pain and restrict motion. Injuries to the neck tend to occur during recreational, sports, or work-related activities.

While most of the neck pain may gradually improve with the aid of home treatment, you should seek medical attention if the pain is accompanied by numbness, severe discomfort, or spreads to other parts of the body. Visit Dr. Llaird Likens Chiropractic Center in Navarre, FL, for natural solutions and effective treatment for your neck pain problems.

Common Injuries Causing Neck Pain

Whiplash

Whiplash is a condition often associated with car accidents where the head jolts forward and backward violently. This sudden force causes damage to the soft tissues and muscles in the neck. As a result, you may experience immense neck pain, decreased motion, headaches, or stiffness when trying to move your head.

Muscle Strains

Muscle strains are caused by poor sitting postures or holding your head in awkward positions while reading, watching TV, or using a computer. This triggers the muscles in your neck to strain, causing neck pain as well as back pain. Also, sleeping on an uneven pillow that is either too high or low for your head may eventually strain your neck muscles.

Pinched Nerves

Pinched nerves are often associated with sport-related activities. This condition occurs when the vertebra on the upper part of the spine is compressed or irritated. This exerts pressure on the nerve nearby, pinching it as a result. A pinched nerve in the neck can cause pain, numbness, or weakness to the arm. Symptoms can worsen when you strain your neck.

Damage to the Spinal Cord

A spinal cord injury can result in severe neck pain. The spinal cord is made of nerves and tissues protected by the vertebral bones. If the vertebra bones are fractured or disrupted, the spinal cord will be exposed to damage.
