Neck pain is a common complaint among all ages groups, genders, and occupations. Reports of neck pain range from a persistent, mild ache to severe and debilitating pain. Neck pain often includes stiffness, limited range of motion, muscle spasms, headaches, and sometimes radiating pain that extends to the shoulders, arms, or upper back. It affects a significant portion of the adult population, with estimates suggesting it affects approximately 10% to 20% of adults, though it’s more commonly observed in women.
Generally, neck pain is nothing to worry about. Most episodes of neck pain resolve themselves within a matter of days. However, it is important to seek medical attention if the neck pain persists for more than a week, becomes severe, or is accompanied by other symptoms.

What Causes Neck Pain?
The neck is the main support for your head so it’s susceptible to injuries and painful conditions. There are a plethora of causes for neck pain, with some being more common than others. The most common causes of neck pain include muscle strains, joint wear, compressed nerves, injuries, and poor posture. Most neck pain isn’t serious and will go away within a few days. But if you have neck pain that’s been going on for a while, neck pain that followed an injury, or neck pain that is debilitating, call Central States Pain Clinic. Or, schedule an appointment with us!
