Neck pain is a common problem, but that doesn’t mean you have to live with the pain. Your neck is one of the most flexible locations of your spine. It contains seven vertebrae that protect your spinal cord in addition to tendons, muscles, ligaments, and nerves. While your neck is incredibly strong and mobile, its complicated anatomy also leaves you vulnerable to neck stiffness, neck injury, neck inflammation, and neck pain.
Other causes of neck pain include: Arthritis; Fibromyalgia; Pinched nerve; Herniated discs; Degenerative disc disease; Osteoporosis; Spinal stenosis; Spinal tumors or cancer; and Congenital abnormalities. In some cases, neck pain can also cause symptoms in other areas of your body, including headaches, shoulder pain, and limited movement in the head. Therapies that treat neck pain include: Facet joint injections; Stem cell therapy; Coblation Nucleoplasty; and Kyphoplasty or Vertebroplasty.
