Neck pain is a common condition that refers to any discomfort or pain felt in the area of the neck, which is located at the back of the head and extends down to the shoulders.
Chronic neck pain may be a sign of more severe spine conditions, such as cervical degenerative disk disease, disk herniation, radiculopathy, or spinal stenosis. These conditions are typically caused by injury or age-related deterioration of the spinal disks, which act as cushions between the vertebrae, or by compression of the nerves surrounding the spine.
It's important to speak to a specialist if you’re experiencing persistent or severe neck pain, as these symptoms can be indicative of a more serious underlying condition.
Neck pain can occur in different areas of the neck and may also cause radiating pain that extends to the shoulders, arms, or fingers.
Neck pain can feel different for each person and can range from a dull ache to a sharp, stabbing pain. Some people may experience a tightness/stiffness or a burning/tingling sensation.
Neck pain can affect people of all ages and is often caused by poor posture, injury or trauma, or age.
