Symptoms of a Neck Injury
The neck is under constant pressure experiencing wear and tear, which makes the neck so susceptible to injury through chronic conditions. Since the structures of the neck can also be easily damaged through many types of trauma, either through over-work, stress, falls, or other accidents, neck injuries are very common.
Many symptoms that are a sign of neck injury include:
- Pain in the shoulder or upper arms
- Reduced range of motion in the neck
- Numbness or weakness around the neck
- Muscle spasms
Accidents and Injuries
An unexpected, forced movement of the head and neck in any direction followed by the "rebound" in the opposite direction is called whiplash. Other areas than the neck can be deeply affected, such as joints, ligaments, muscles, and discs. The most common source of high-impact neck injuries like this is car accidents.
These neck injuries might include:
- Neck fracture
- Herniated disc
- Cervical dislocation
- Cervical radiculopathy (pinched nerve)
Likewise, many chronic disorders can result in neck pain such as:
- Rheumatoid arthritis
- Spinal stenosis
- Degenerative disc disease
- Congenital torticollis (twisted neck)
- Spondylosis (cervical disc degeneration)
Daily Life Factors
Particular factors in our daily life can also tribute to neck pain:
- Poor posture
- Emotional stress and tension
These factors can cause the neck to bend in irregular ways to compensate the spinal balance disruption. Overall pain and stiffness are very common due to these lifestyle habits.Whether or not it can be easily changed our habits at home, work, and in recreational environments, play a big role in increasing neck pain.
