Chronic neck pain is a common complaint. Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture or repetitive injury — whether it’s leaning over your computer, driving or hunching over your workbench. Osteoarthritis also is a common cause of neck pain.
A sprain of the muscles, ligaments, or tendons in the neck area usually causes acute neck pain. Motor vehicular accidents, repeated carrying of heavy items (such as luggage), or awkward sleeping positions are also causes. Most minor ligament or tendon injuries in the neck will subside with proper care, including rest, ice or heat application, and rehabilitation such as therapeutic massage, chiropractic care and physical therapy.
One common symptom of chronic neck pain is an ache that radiates down the arm, sometimes into the hands and fingers, accompanied by numbness or tingling.
