HealthActions Neck Pain Treatment

 

As technology becomes a bigger part of all our lives, and we spend more and more time in front of a computer screen, a lot of people complain about having a pain in the neck. Neck pain can seriously limit your ability to perform normal, everyday tasks. Loss of range on motion in your neck can also lead to shoulder pain, and or pain/numbness in your arms and hands.

Your neck, or cervical spine, is made up of seven bones called vertebrae which are stacked upon one another. In between each bone lies a spongy material called the intervertabral disc. Each vertebra has two joints towards the back that connect with the joints of the vertebra below it. These bones in your neck protect your spinal cord and allow normal motion.

If you start having neck pain, don't panic, it often gets better in just a few days. If it persists, however, a visit to a Physical Therapist for a complete exam could give you some answers and help alleviate neck pain and prevent it from reoccurring.
