Neck Pain And Its Main Causes

Posted by Advanced Injury Care Clinic on Jul 23, 2019 3:07:59 PM

Your neck is part of a long flexible column, known as the spinal column or backbone.

Your spinal column extends through most of your body, and the region that makes up your neck is called the cervical spine.

The cervical spine consists of seven bones that are separated from one another by intervertebral discs.

The discs allow the spine to move freely and act as shock absorbers during activity.

Due to the complexity of the cervical spine, the odds are pretty high that it'll act up at some point during your life and cause neck pain.

Your neck pain might be a little soreness, or it could be a more intense pain making it tough to do simple things like turn your head.

There are many common causes of neck pain.

Fortunately, neck pain rarely leads to more serious problems, but that doesn't make it any more enjoyable.

In the article below, we'll talk about the most common reasons why you could be experiencing neck pain.
