Neck Pain Q & A

What is neck pain?
Neck pain is a common pain complaint that includes discomfort that affects the muscles, joints, nerves, ligaments, or tendons that make up your neck and spine. Neck pain may also lead to headaches or discomfort that radiates to your shoulder, arms, and hands.
What are neck pain symptoms?

Neck pain symptoms can vary in type and severity. Common symptoms include:

    • Muscle tightness
    • Muscle spasms
    • Limited ability to move your head
    • Headaches
    • Shoulder pain
    • Numbness in your hands or arms

What causes neck pain?

Neck pain can develop from many causes. In most cases, neck pain isn’t a serious health issue, but the pain can be long-term and affect your quality of life. Common causes of neck pain include:

  • Herniated or bulging disc
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Pinched nerve
  • Sprains or strains
  • Whiplash
  • Car Crashes
  • Trauma
  • Sports injury
  • Osteoarthritis

Many of these causes of neck pain are degenerative in nature and won’t naturally heal without treatment and worsen with time. If you delay treatment, it’s possible your neck condition may lead to extensive damage.

The team at Downtown’s Healthcare specializes in degenerative neck conditions and provides treatments that heal the underlying cause of your neck pain to provide the relief you need and restore neck health and function.
