Neck Pain Q&A

What is neck pain?

Neck pain refers to any discomfort involving the neck. Your neck is the most flexible part of your spine, allowing you to move your head up and down and side to side. The structure and function of the neck make it vulnerable to injuries and conditions that cause pain.

When left untreated, neck pain can interfere with your daily activities and quality of life. Pain Management Associates LLC provides expert care for all types of neck pain. 

What causes neck pain?

Neck pain can develop after a car accident or bad fall, from poor posture or overuse or a degenerative condition affecting the spine’s structure. 

Common causes of neck pain include:

  • Sprains and strains
  • Whiplash
  • Arthritis
  • Herniated disc
  • Pinched nerve
  • Spinal stenosis
  • Cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve with radiating pain)

Stress can also cause neck pain from muscle tension. 

Pain Management Associates LLC specializes in treating whiplash, also known as cervical acceleration/deceleration (CAD) syndrome. Getting the right care for whiplash may prevent your acute injury from becoming a chronic pain condition.
