Most people will experience neck pain at some point in their lives. Neck pain can be acute, meaning it lasts a few hours to a few weeks, or it can be chronic. Neck pain that lasts several weeks or longer is considered chronic neck pain. Most causes of neck pain aren’t serious. Poor posture at work, such as leaning into your computer, and during hobbies, such as hunching over your workbench, are common causes of neck pain.
What are the common causes of neck pain?
- “Slipped disc” or disc herniation
- Arthritis or “wear and tear” on the joints
- Degenerated Discs
- Joint Stiffness or Dysfunction
Symptoms you can experience include neck pain, spasm, stiffness, pain that travels into your arm or hand, and numbness or tingling in your arm or hand.
