What Causes Neck Pain?
Most cases of neck pain are caused by a sprain or strain to one or more of the muscles in the cervical spine and the good news is that most cases of neck pain will subside on their own after rest and temporary activity modification.
When neck pain does not subside for weeks and interferes with daily activities, it is then known as chronic neck pain. This is when you should seek the expertise of one of the Board Certified Spine Specialists at The Spine Institute of Louisiana to determine the underlying cause of chronic neck pain. Also, it is important to make an appointment if you begin to experience pain, numbness or tingling in the shoulders, arms or fingers as this may be a sign of a more serious condition.
Chronic neck pain can be the result of damage to the spinal discs or the spinal vertebrae. Proper examination and testing from a Spine Institute of Louisiana Spine Specialists is the most effective way to determine what is causing pain.
Common causes of chronic neck can be the result of underlying conditions including:
- Herniated, bulging or slipped spinal discs
- Cervical Spinal Stenosis
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Spinal bone spurs
- Spinal arthritis
- A pinched nerve in the cervical spine
- Ankylosing Spondylitis
- Facet Joint Disease
- Spinal fractures
The Spine Team at The Spine Institute of Louisiana has helped thousands of patients with chronic neck pain return to an active and healthy lifestyle using a variety of treatment options.
