What causes neck pain?
Neck pain is caused by many things. This particular part of your spine (the cervical spine) contains a complex system of bones, discs, connective ligaments, muscles, and other tissues. You can damage any one of these intersecting parts, causing pain.
Neck pain is usually caused by some kind of inflammation, which then triggers the symptoms. This inflammation can reveal itself in many ways. A few of the most common neck pain triggers are:
- Muscle strains
- Cervical spinal stenosis
- Cervical disc degeneration
- Cervical disc herniation
- Arthritis (osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis)
- Cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve)
- Poor posture
- Poor sleeping position
The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness treats all causes of neck pain, including cases where the pain is caused by several things acting together.
