The pain may begin in any of the structures in the neck (muscles, nerves, vertebrae and the disks between them, etc.) and can radiate down to the back and arms. Pain can also be radiated from other areas like the shoulder, jaw, head, or upper arms. A common cause of neck pain is muscle strain or tension - and everyday activities are the culprit. Being bent over a desk all day, poor posture while reading or watching TV, or sleeping in an awkward position can all be causes.
read moreYour body depends on the spinal column for structural stability. The shoulders, rib cage and pelvis are anchored to the spine for strength and support. You also depend on the spine for mobility - the ability to twist, bend and flex your body for different activities. The spine is constructed of 24 jointed bones, or vertebrae, stacked from pelvis to the skull in a gentle "S" curve. Between the vertebrae are spongy discs that cushion the bones and bond the stack together. Pairs of bony projections, called facets, connect the rear of each vertebra to form a series of interlocking joints.
