What is Neck Pain?

Acute neck pain is a sudden and intense pain in the neck region referred to as a crick in the neck, facet syndrome or muscular rheumatism. Pain that lasts longer than three months is called chronic neck pain.
 
Symptoms
  • General pain in neck area
  • Stiffness in neck muscles which may also affect the shoulders
Cause
  • Trauma and injury is the most common cause of neck pain but others include
  • Worry and stress
  • Sleeping in an awkward position putting unnatural stress on the neck area
  • Prolonged use of a computer with the neck tilted at an unnatural angle
  • Car accidents or other sudden jolts or impacts
Treatment
  • Usually acute neck pain subsides once the neck is returned to the correct position and pressure is relived from the nerves in the area.
  • Massaging Oils or ointments can be used to alleviate symptoms
  • Chronic neck pain may require more rigorous treatment which could include exercises
  • Neck braces or supports will help with pain management
Prevention
  • Taking care in physical activities is a good way to prevent injury to the neck region
