Neck Pain Q & A

What causes neck pain?

Due to its range of mobility and the burden of having to support the weight of your head, your neck is vulnerable to injury and pain. You may experience neck pain for any number of reasons. Common causes of neck pain include:

  • Muscle strain or sprain
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Herniated disc
  • Arthritis
  • Whiplash

Your pain may come on suddenly after an accident or develop slowly over time. The type of pain these conditions cause can vary, and range from a chronic dull ache to a sharp shooting pain that travels down your arms.

When should I see a doctor for my neck pain?

While you can manage most instances of neck pain at home, if your pain lingers or seems to be getting worse instead of better, then it’s time to contact the specialists at Arlington Pain & Therapy.

You should also seek medical help for your neck pain if you’re experiencing:

  • Limited range of motion
  • Neck pain with headaches
  • Pain that travels down your arms
  • Tingling or numbness

You should also contact the specialists at Arlington Pain & Therapy if your neck pain is so severe it affects your quality of life.
