Discomfort in the neck and shoulders can arise from strained or overworked muscles, poor posture, or a previous injury.

"I’m honestly afraid of needles. But the male nurse(can’t remember his name) made it easy the first time I went. And every time I go he makes sure I’m put in the room with him. They use a numbing spray in which you barely feel a thing. And you can drive yourself home afterwards. So far I’ve had 2 injections in my back and 1 in my neck. I have my last one in my neck next week and honestly, I’m not even nervous about it."- A.W. / Google / Jan 08, 2021

Symptoms of Neck Pain
The most common signs and symptoms of neck discomfort often include:
- Muscle tightness or stiff neck
- Muscles spasms, numbness, or tingling
- The inability to rotate or move your head naturally
- Severe headaches or migraines
These concerns will vary from person to person and may be chronic in nature or arise suddenly for short periods at a time.
Causes of Neck Pain
The cervical region or upper portion of the spine is made up of small bones known as vertebrae that line the back of the neck from the skull down to the shoulders. Between each vertebra are discs that help absorb shock between the bones. If there is any misalignment of these bones or a damaged disc (also known as a slipped disc), then mild to severe pain generally follows. Discomfort in the neck may also be caused by injury to the muscles and ligaments in the neck that occurred during contact sports, a bad fall, or whiplash from a car accident. Typically, neck pain is not a cause for serious concern and can be easily eased with medication or other therapies. However, in some cases, neck pain may be caused by osteoarthritis, which is the deterioration of the underlying cartilage and bone. If you are experiencing ongoing neck pain, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with our team at Tricity Pain Associates.
