What are the causes of neck pain?

Since your neck is flexible and carries the weight of your head, it’s vulnerable to injuries. Neck pain can be caused by:

Muscle strain

Even repeated minor motions like grinding your teeth and other forms of overuse can strain your neck muscles. Remaining in a position where you’re hunched forward is another muscle strain trigger.

Disease

Some diseases like arthritis, cancer, or meningitis can cause neck pain due to inflammation and muscle tension.

Injury

Accidents and injuries, particularly when there’s a high-impact trauma can cause neck pain and other complications like whiplash. If your head moves rapidly into an unnatural position, it can pull the soft tissues in your neck.

Nerve compression

Nerve compression is the result of bone spurs or herniated discs in your neck pressing on the spinal cord nerves, resulting in moderate to severe pain.

Worn joints

Your neck joints wear down over time and can become painful. Conditions like osteoarthritis cause the cartilage between the bones to deteriorate. Any deterioration, trauma, or straining of the muscles, bones, and cartilage in the neck can lead to pain.

What are the causes of back pain?

Your spine supports your body weight and is made up of over 30 small vertebrae stacked together. The many cartilage discs that sit between the vertebrae act as shock absorbers, preventing friction of the bones.

With all of those complex components from bones to cartilage, it’s not surprising that there’s plenty of room for error and damage to occur.

The lower back tends to be one of the more painful areas because it endures a lot of mechanical stress from our everyday lives: It bears much of your upper body’s weight.

What are the treatments for neck and back pain?

  • Medical manipulation
