Treatment for Neck Pain? How to treat neck pains?

Neck pain (cervicalgia) can be one of the most frustrating pains in the body. Neck pain is the discomfort that arises from the skull base to the upper shoulder blades and arms. The inability to freely move your head or shooting pain, tingling sensation, pain in the shoulder blades and the forearm, and numbness in the hands or fingers are all symptoms of cervical radiculopathy.


Some of the common causes of neck pain are:

  • Intervertebral disc bulges
  • Herniated discs
  • Pinched or impinged nerves
  • Osteophytes (bone spurs)
  • Spinal or disc degeneration
  • Overstretched nerves (burners or stingers)
  • Ligament sprains (ex. Whiplash)
  • Muscle strains (from prolonged sitting or carrying heavy weights).
