What Causes Neck Pain?

Neck pain is a common problem, with nearly two-thirds of the population having neck pain at some point in their lives. Neck pain, although felt in the neck, can be caused by numerous other spinal problems. This condition may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back, or pinching of the nerves emanating from the cervical vertebrae.

Because the head is supported by the lower neck and upper back, it is in these areas where most patients feel neck and shoulder pain. The top three joints in the neck allow for most movement of your neck and head. The lower joints in the neck and those of the upper back create a supportive structure for your head to sit on. If this support system is affected adversely, then the muscles in the area will tighten, leading to neck pain.
