Different Types of Neck Pain
There are many different types of neck pain, including:
- Nerve pinch injury - Nerve pinch injury can cause pain, tingling, and numbness both in the extremities and in the neck as well.
- Whiplash - Whiplash is a condition that occurs when the head whips around and the muscles and ligaments become torn. Whiplash causes neck pain, stiffness, and headache.
- Muscle strain - Muscle strain caused by repetitive motions can cause neck pain, inflammation, and stiffness.
- Damage to vertebral disc - This type of injury can cause pain throughout the body and tingling and numbness in the extremities.
Common Causes of Neck Pain
There are many reasons that people experience neck pain. Some of the most common causes of neck pain include:
- Poor posture - Standing or sitting in an awkward position for long periods of time can impact the shape of the spinal column and the relationship between the vertebrae and the spinal cord, leading to pain. The recently identified condition known as "text neck" is a form of poor posture that can have an impact on the overall shape of the spine.
- Auto accident - Auto accidents are a common cause of whiplash.
- Poor lifting and twisting techniques - Poor lifting and twisting techniques can lead to back injury and neck injury.
