Neck Pain Definition
What is neck pain? When you have a soreness sensation or discomfort feeling in your neck area, you have neck pain. In the medical world, neck pain is also known as cervicalgia.

Neck pain (cervicalgia) originates from disorders of the patientai??i??s neck. The pain may also comes from structures close to the patientai??i??s neck. Mostly, neck pain cases are associated with a difficulty to move the neck or a stiff neck, predominantly on one side.

If a slipped disk presses on the patientai??i??s nerve or a muscle spasm occurs, neck pain can be correlated with weakness, tingling, or numbness in the patientai??i??s arm or hand.

Neck Pain Causes
The possible causes of neck pain are as follows:

  • Meningitis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Herniated disk between the patientai??i??s neck vertebrae
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Injury to the patientai??i??s neck resulting in blood vessel damage, spinal fracture, or whiplash
  • Muscle tension (usually happens due to more strain or stress on the patientai??i??s upper back and/or neck areas of the patientai??i??s spines).

As we can read from the explanation above, sometimes the causes of neck pain can be simple, such as lengthy episodes holding your neck in a specific position.
