At some point, most people will feel and understand the significant impact of neck pain. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, more than 7.6 million patients seek medical help annually for painful symptoms affecting the neck. The cause of neck pain varies from person to person and is caused by injuries, trauma, sports-related conditions, or degenerative illness.
What causes neck pain?
James L. Carlisle, MD treats patients suffering from neck pain or cervical spine disorders, including:
- Sports Injury
- Neck sprain
- Pinched Nerve
- Neck muscle strain
- Ligament strain
- Arthritic conditions
- Herniated disc
- Traumatic accidents and falls
- Cervical disc degeneration
Neck pain impacts the cervical spine, comprised of vulnerable bones at the base of the skull. Each vertebra rests on ligaments and discs to provide essential stability for your head and mobility for the rest of the body. Cervical disc problems can result in chronic neck pain that radiates down the arms or legs, headaches, weakness, tingling, or numbness, and loss of mobility.
