Like other joints in the body, we realize that neck pain is an extremely common problem that many people face.
What Causes Neck Pain?
Your whole life is spend holding up your head which weighs around 8-10 lbs. Years and years of holding up your head puts a lot of wear and tear on your tiny neck bones or discs. This leads to arthritis, which is known to cause.
- Muscle weakness
- Loss of balance
As the discs in your spine begin to age they lose their durability, their height and they begin to bulge. As the discs experience pressure, they begin to degenerate and to develop arthritis. If the cartilage between the discs wears away completely it can result in the bones on your neck rubbing on each other resulting in chronic pain and spurring.
Some common causes of neck pain include:
- Slowly overusing the area
- After an injury
- Delayed reaction to an injury
- Car accidents
More than likely if you have neck pain you’ll know exactly what’s going on. You’ll most likely also be aware of the cause. However, if you aren’t sure then neck pain can feel like any of the following:
- Sharp pain in one area of the neck
- Stiff neck that makes movement painful
- Sore or Tenderness in ONE area of the neck
- Pain that travels or extends to the arms, shoulders or even fingers; or up to your head.
Can I prevent Neck Pain?
You can take preventative measures to prevent minor pains in the neck. For example, many people suffer from neck pain after a poor nights sleep. Try sleeping on your back, getting a proper pillow etc.
Since poor posture is the main cause of neck pains you can also try fixing your posture, avoid neck strain from texting, use a headset when you’re on the phone, sitting up straight etc.
You may also be able to prevent some injuries and sprains by prevention. For example, you have higher odds of getting neck pain from injuries that occur during sports and also car accidents. However, preventing these situations is not always practical. While it may be easy to avoid injury prone hobbies, avoiding tasks like driving are a little more difficult.
