Common Neck Injuries You’re Experiencing

Original Publish Date
May 5, 2021

Your neck is a vital yet vulnerable part of your body due to its ability to move in many directions while holding the weight of your head (average wt 10 lbs). While neck pain (cervical spine) is not as commonly treated as low back pain (lumbar spine) millions of people will experience it at some point in their lives. While the majority of everyday neck pain and stiffness will alleviate over time without surgery it is important to understand neck pain and causes.

CAUSES OF NECK PAIN:

*If you have associated numbness/tingling or loss of strength in your arms/hands you should seek the help of a physician right away.

WHAT CAN I DO?

If you have any neck pain lasting longer than a few days or it has gotten worse despite your best efforts it is a good idea to have it evaluated by a physical therapist. With a combination of manual therapy and the right exercise program physical therapy is the best treatment option.
