Common Causes of Neck Pain
When you are suffering from neck pain, it is important to understand what may be causing the problem. Some common causes of neck pain include:
- Whiplash: While this condition is most common in auto accidents, it can also occur during sports injuries or other types of trauma. Whiplash occurs when the neck is suddenly and forcefully jerked forward or backward, causing the muscles and ligaments to stretch beyond their normal range.
- Diseases: Diseases such as arthritis and degenerative disc disease can cause neck pain. These conditions cause the spine to deteriorate, which can lead to pain, stiffness, and inflammation.
- Poor posture: Poor posture can lead to a number of problems, including neck pain. When you sit or stand with poor posture, it puts unnecessary strain on the muscles and ligaments in the neck, which can lead to pain.
- Muscle strains: Muscle strains are a common cause of neck pain. These occur when the muscles in the neck are overworked or strained, causing them to become inflamed and painful.
- Pinched nerves: This can occur when the nerves in the neck are compressed, resulting in pain, numbness, and tingling.
