Symptoms of Neck Pain
Although neck pain itself is a symptom, it is often accompanied
by other related symptoms that include:
• Muscle tightness
• Stiffness or tightness in the neck muscles
• And difficulty in moving your neck
These symptoms are usually temporary and tend to improve within a few days or a few weeks with at-home treatment. If the neck pain or stiffness continues to persist for several weeks, a visit to the doctor may be needed.
Also, you must contact your GP if the pain worsens, spreads down to your arms, shoulders, and/or legs or is accompanied by numbness, weakness, or a tingling sensation.
Causes of Neck Pain
Causes of Neck Pain
The most common reasons people complain of neck pain is overuse and bad posture.
Leaning over a laptop or computer screen and sleeping without proper support puts a strain on the neck muscles, causing them to tense up.
Furthermore, neck pain is also connected to stress and anxiety as the muscles in that region tense up.
Tensed or Strained Muscles
As mentioned previously, tension and strain on the muscles are some of the most common causes of neck pain.
Poor posture while sleeping and working on a computer or laptop are the leading causes. Besides that, jerking the neck too fast while exercising or keeping the neck in one stiff position for too long can cause neck pain.
If you participate in aggressive sports such as rugby or football, your neck will be more vulnerable to injury.
You can fall, get pushed or jerk the neck the wrong way, often forcing the tendons and muscles in the neck to move out of their usual place.
In more serious cases, neck injuries can damage the cervical vertebrae or neck bones. This may increase the risk of major injury and requires immediate medical attention.
Other, more uncommon causes for neck pain include:
• An accident that gives you whiplash due to sudden neck muscle movement
• Locked or twisted neck – torticollis
• Cervical spondylosis or arthritis of the neck
• Pinched nerve
• Spinal stenosis
• Rheumatoid arthritis
Neck Pain Treatment
For non-serious neck pain that doesn’t warrant a GP visit, pain management is possible at home. Mayo Clinic suggests:
• Over-the-counter pain killers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol
• Alternating between hot and cold therapy throughout the day
• Neck exercises
• Sleeping with proper neck and shoulder support
• Massaging the neck with a pain relief gel
The NHS also suggests that unless your GP advises you, do not wear a neck collar. Make sure you get enough movement to keep the muscles engaged.
Neck Pain Treatment
In addition to home remedies and pain management techniques, it is crucial that one tries to prevent neck pain.
The NHS suggests the following:
• Making sure to keep your head at the same height as your
body when sleeping or laying down
• Sitting in an upright posture with the shoulders
squared and neck back

hunched over or working on a computer
