Neck Pain

Your neck is made up of many components, such as ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Because the neck has an extensive range of motion, it is susceptible to many injuries and painful conditions. The neck’s ability to function properly is directly tied to many other muscle groups, like the shoulder, back, and chest. 

Additionally, if neck pain is left untreated, it can become chronic. Chronic neck pain can present itself as pain, stiffness, and soreness in the neck, perhaps with decreased mobility, which becomes harder and harder to resolve when left untreated.

What are the causes and symptoms

One of the most common causes of neck pain is injury to the soft tissues, including the neck muscles, tendons, and ligaments within these structures. Individuals who spend most of their day sitting at work, or doing sedentary activities, have a high-risk factor for developing this condition. The risk is increased especially high for those who sit in poor posture, with the head in a flexed forward position.

In addition to muscle strains and sprains, several other common neck pain causes, such as herniated discs, Osteoarthritis (developing from the wear and tear of cartilage and bones), as well as rheumatoid arthritis. In some cases, this condition may also be caused by an injury to the cervical spine, cervical disc degeneration disease, or other injuries that put pressure on the nerve roots.

How PTX addresses Neck Pain

Traditional neck pain treatment may include over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), massages, or some form of physical therapy. A physical therapist might use several methods to treat neck pain such as heat, ice, or braces.

More severe cases may require steroid injections. If worse comes to worst, surgery may be recommended by your doctor to correct severe neck pain or injuries, especially those that may be spine related.
