Neck pain can occur due to a number of underlying issues such as a recent injury, muscular problem, a nerve that is trapped or because of arthritis in the neck. Often called as cervical pain in the medical world, depending on its intensity – neck pain can be uncomfortable and for the patient.
If you have neck pain for more than three months and no home remedies, massage or therapy is relieving you of the pain – it means you are suffering from chronic neck pain. If you have been working for elongated hours and not taking enough rest, your neck muscles can become tired resulting in neck pain. With time and age, the neck of a person also becomes old just like joints and can result in pain. If you have been in an accident where your neck’s tissue, muscles were directly or indirectly affected – it can also result in neck pain.
