Diagnostics and Treatment of Neck Pain
Muscle, ligament, nerve, and spine injuries are common causes of neck pain. Poor posture and “wear and tear” can also cause neck pain. Age-related diseases, such as arthritis or degenerative disc disease can cause the spinal structures to break down and put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. Neck pain can spread to the head, shoulders, arms, and hands. You may also experience related back pain.
