Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Your neck is the most flexible part of your spine, and its function is to support the weight and mobility of your head. However, the structure and function of your neck, also known as the cervical spine, make it susceptible to conditions that cause pain.

You may develop neck pain from poor posture, an injury, or an underlying disease. Common causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle strain
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Herniated discs
  • Whiplash
  • Degenerative disc disease
  • Nerve compression from herniated discs or bone spurs

The severity of your neck pain may depend on the cause. 

Muscle strain from poor posture causes mild pain that resolves with a little at-home care. However, if you spend several hours a day most days of the week with your head bent over an electronic device, the extra stress may damage your neck, increasing your risk of developing a chronic pain condition. 

Who benefits from rehabilitation for neck pain?

Anyone with acute or chronic neck pain can benefit from rehabilitation at Precision Rehab Occupational Physical & Hand Therapy.

The team asks detailed questions about your pain, including when it started, the type of symptoms you feel, and the activities that make it worse or better. They also review your medical history, daily routine, and work habits.

Your provider then evaluates your neck, assessing general structure, muscle strength, and range of motion. They use the information gathered during your initial evaluation to develop your functional goals and treatment plan.
