Common causes of neck pain

February 9, 2018

Common causes of neck pain

Muscle tension in the neck and shoulders is the most common cause of neck pain. As simple and perhaps boring as it sounds, neck pain is usually due to muscle tension and muscle tension. Muscle tension may be due to poor working position or stressful business transactions. The risk of neck pain is increased by long-term sitting, working positions where hands are lifted for a long time, and working positions that require hand strength. The position on the front or back of the head and the rotation of the head also increase the load on the neck.

Neck pains can also be caused by injury, such as neck throat injuries, such as those caused by a car coil. Other rare causes of neck pain in addition to injuries include neuromuscular seizures, vertebrae wear, inflammatory conditions, and intervertebral disc bulging in the cervical spine. Seek medical advice if neck pain is clearly caused by neck pain, pain associated with fever, vomiting or chest pain, or if pain begins to worsen significantly within 1-2 days after the onset of pain, numbness of the fingers and muscle weakness of the upper limb. However, the focus here is on the symptoms and treatment of a more common, muscular tension resulting from neck pain.

Symptoms of neck pain and pain determination

Neck pain can be local pain or symptoms including headache or back ache. The pain can also radiate into the hands and the numbness and tingling in the hands indicate that the nerve root is compressed. Neck pain is divided into acute and chronic pain. Acute pain is a sudden pain that lasts less than 12 weeks and chronic pain that lasts longer than 12 weeks. It is important that neck pain does not get longer, so self-care is important.

Neck Pain Solutions – Treatment and Prevention

Stay active despite the pain. Pain is not the reason to stop exercise, but rather the reason to move. A good guideline can be used to move within the limits of pain.

Exercise relieves neck pain. It is important that the neck and shoulders get in motion, the blood circulation is increased and therefore the metabolism of the area is increased. Brisk metabolism helps to remove debris from tight muscles.

Regular exercise reduces muscle tension in the neck area. For example, Nordic walking, a light breaker, and gym training are good forms of exercise. Particularly, the musculature, mobility and coordination of the shoulder and shoulders should be exercised. Durability exercises and muscle stretching in the neck, shoulders and shoulders are well suited for the treatment of neck pain. You can also try dynamic exercises that combine both stretch and light muscle work.

Above all, it would be important to prevent neck pain. Poor positions of the head and neck should be avoided, such as pushing the head forward or back so that the jaw is raised. For example, when working with a display terminal, the head pushes forward or the jaw rises. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the working position is ergonomic and the display head at the correct height.

Massage can be used to relieve muscle tension in the upper back, shoulder and neck area, but more research is needed on its direct effect on neck pain.
