What causes neck pain?

One of the most common causes of neck pain is a pinched nerve, which happens when the vertebrae in the neck shift out of alignment and push down directly onto the nerves. When this happens, it can cause pain to develop in the neck that can radiate into the head, shoulders, and arms. Misalignment can occur because of:

  • Awkward sleeping positions.

  • Poor posture.

  • Text Neck.

  • Forward Head Syndrome.

  • Having your neck forced past its normal range of motion.

  • Whiplash

Can neck pain can be prevented?

Patients can avoid the common causes of neck pain with a few simple adjustments. These include:

  • Maintaining proper posture while sitting or standing

  • Getting up and stretching/moving around frequently

  • Keeping your computer monitor eye-level

  • Sleeping on your side or your back

  • Getting regular exercise to maintain flexibility

  • Using a firm pillow

  • When on a call, use a headset or speakerphone

Using relaxation exercises, neck exercises, and maintaining a healthy body weight are also proven techniques for preventing neck pain.
