Common Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain is a prevalent condition that can have a significant impact on your daily life. It can arise from various causes, and it's estimated that 60-70% of the population will experience neck pain at some point in their lives. At our clinic, we specialize in treating different types of neck pain to help you find relief and restore your quality of life.

Here are some common causes of neck pain that we address:

Acute Cervical Sprains/Strains

These injuries typically occur due to sudden movements, such as whiplash from a car accident or a sports-related incident. They involve the stretching or tearing of ligaments and muscles in the neck, leading to pain and stiffness.

Cervical Radiculopathy

This condition occurs when a nerve in the neck becomes compressed or irritated, causing pain, tingling, or numbness that radiates into the shoulder, arm, or hand. It can be caused by herniated discs, bone spurs, or narrowing of the spinal canal.

Muscle Spasms/Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Muscle spasms in the neck can result from muscle imbalances, poor posture, overuse, or stress. Myofascial pain syndrome refers to the presence of trigger points, which are tight knots within the muscles that cause localized or referred pain.

Muscle Spasms/Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Sometimes, the exact cause of neck pain may be challenging to determine. Non-specific neck pain can arise from factors such as muscular imbalances, postural issues, stress, or degenerative changes in the cervical spine.

Physical Therapy Neck Pain Treatment

Our approach to treating neck pain involves a thorough assessment to identify the underlying cause of your specific condition. Our skilled physical therapists will develop a personalized treatment plan that may include a combination of manual therapy techniques, targeted exercises to improve strength and flexibility, postural correction, pain management strategies, and patient education.
