Neck Pain

What is Neck Pain?

Our Orthopedists Can Help Ease Your Neck Pain

Neck pain (or cervicalgia) is a common problem, with two-thirds of the population having neck pain at some point in their lives.

The head is supported by the lower neck and upper back, and it is these areas that commonly cause neck pain. The top three joints in the neck allow for most movement of your neck and head. The lower joints in the neck and those of the upper back create a supportive structure for your head to sit on. If this support system is affected adversely, then the muscles in the area will tighten, leading to neck pain.

Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain may also arise from many other physical and emotional health problems.

Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back, or pinching of the nerves emanating from the cervical vertebrae. Joint disruption in the neck creates pain, as does joint disruption in the upper back.

Schedule a consultation to meet with one of our experienced orthopedists who can help determine the cause of your neck pain and create a customized treatment plan.
