Neck Pain Treatment in Logan, UT
Pain found in the neck is a common problem and almost two-thirds of the population have suffered from it at some point in their lives. So what causes it? Here are a few causes behind neck pain:
- Doing something of a sedentary nature, such as sitting and typing for prolonged periods of time, can cause neck pain.
- Aging causes the bones and discs in the spine to wear out, causing pain and discomfort.
- Accidents, injuries, illness, and other medical factors that can be treated in traditional ways can also be the causes behind neck pain.
Activities That Harm Your Neck
Most neck pain is caused by activities that involve repeated or prolonged movements of the neck. This can result in muscle strain (an overstretched or overused muscle), a sprain (injury), or inflammation that leads to spasms in the neck muscles or joints. Here are some examples:
- Holding your head in a forward or awkward position for long periods of time while working, reading, driving, and watching TV.
- Talking over the telephone with the handset held between the ear and the shoulder.
- Sleeping on a pillow that is either too high or too flat, that doesn’t support your neck properly or sleeping on your stomach with your neck twisted or bent awkwardly.
- Spending long periods of time resting your forehead on your upright fist or arm.
- Exercise or work that uses the upper body and arms, such as painting a ceiling or doing some work overhead.
Stress and intense focus on a task can also cause neck pain. This is common is corporate offices, where there are strict and tough deadlines to meet. Tension may develop in one or more of the muscles that connect the head, neck, and shoulders and they may hurt and feel tight. For the vast majority of people, neck pain can be treated conservatively.
