Chronic neck pain

Chronic neck pain

Chronic neck pain can be both frustrating and painful. There can be many causes of neck pain including:

  • Overuse and strenuous activity
  • Improper or repetitive heavy lifting
  • Trauma, injury or fractures
  • Stress on the muscles and ligaments that support the neck, resulting in degeneration
  • Poor muscle tone
  • Sprain or strain
  • Ligament or muscle tears
  • Joint problems, such as arthritis
  • Smoking
  • Protruding or herniated (slipped) disc and pinched nerve
  • Osteoporosis
  • Congenital (present at birth) abnormalities

Most types of chronic neck pain can be managed effectively with drug and non-drug therapies. The experts at the Pain Center can help you with the most advanced pain treatments available.
