Neck pain treatment in Winter Park: Any abnormalities, inflammation or injury in the bones, ligaments or muscles of your neck can cause neck pain or stiffness. This can be due to daily activities, or injury. Neck pain is very common among adults and can occur in younger people as well.
Neck pain can become chronic if left untreated
Often neck pain is located in one spot, but in some cases the pain can become constant or radiates into other body parts, such as the shoulder and arms. Taking medication can mask the pain, but the root cause is not healed on its own. The neck is very vulnerable to injury. During a fall, car accident, sports or injury the muscles and ligaments of the neck are forced to move outside of their normal range. If the neck bones, or cervical vertebrae, are fractured the spinal cord may also be damaged.
Neck pain can minor and easily ignored, but can still cause long term pain. Neck pain can possibly become excruciating to the point where it interferes with important daily activities. It can also lead to sleep issues, poor posture and other areas of the body potentially becoming injured due to tension and over-compensation for the injured area. The pain might be brief, sporadic or turn into constant pain. And in rare cases, neck pain can also be a signal of a serious underlying medical issue,
Symptoms of a neck injury may include:
- Mild reoccurring pain in the neck
- Pain immediately after or delayed pain after injury
- Tingling, numbness or weakness in the arms
- Stiff neck or throat pain
