The neck is a very common place to have pain, stiffness, or limited mobility. You may even hear grating noises in your neck as you move your head. These conditions may come from a variety of causes:
- forward head posture
- other forms of poor posture
- muscle aches from viral infections like mono, influenza, or the common cold
- muscle strain
- ligament sprain
- side effects from a wide variety of drugs
- cervical facet syndrome
- radiculopathy (often misnamed a "pinched nerve")
- cervical spinal degeneration and osteoarthritis
- cervical disc herniation
- spinal stenosis
- cervical vertebral dislocation
- neck fracture
- spinal cord tumors
Ask Dr. Johnson for simple neck stretches and exercises and ergonomic tips to help you avoid neck pain.
