If you’re suffering from neck pain, you’re not alone. It’s a very common issue in our modern society, especially associated with our positioning when browsing on our mobile phones or working at the computer. Oftentimes this neck pain is related to our posture, such as being bent forward when sitting in front of the computer at your desk, which commonly leads to weakness in the neck.

Neck pain can be so mild that it is merely annoying and distracting, or it can be so severe that it is unbearable and incapacitating. Sometimes, neck pain can progress into arm pain, and that makes it even worse, making it hard to even be at a computer, lift or carry objects, or even reach out or overhead.

You might have already tried stretching, yoga, or even massage to alleviate the pain, and these can help a little bit, but they rarely take the pain away completely.

This neck and arm pain is very unique to you, regardless of what the diagnosis is, you need to come in for a specialized assessment so we can determine where the pain is coming from and create a specialized program just for you that addresses exactly where your weakness and loss of motion is, and in that way, we can get you back to where you need to be.

Most instances of neck pain are minor and commonly caused by something you did. That is, if you keep your head in an awkward position for too long the joints in your neck can “lock” and the neck muscles can become painfully fatigued. Poor posture while working, watching TV, using a computer, reading a book, or talking on the phone with the receiver held against your shoulder and under your chin can be responsible for neck pain.

Neck pain that persists for many days or keeps coming back may be a sign that something is wrong. Disease, an injury (such as whiplash in an auto accident), a congenital malformation, or age-related changes may be responsible for more significant pain. A trained medical professional must determine the underlying causes of such neck pain. Examination and diagnosis by a medical doctor and treatment by a physical therapist may quickly relieve your pain or help you deal with it on a long-term basis.

Almost everyone experiences some sort of neck pain or stiffness at one time or another during their life. Because you walk upright and your head is “balanced” on top of your spine like a golf ball on a tee. The head weighs between 10 and 15 pounds. If the muscles that support your head and neck are not kept flexible and strong, poor and prolonged postures can put too much stress on the head and neck muscles and joints. This can lead to strains of the muscles and sprains of the ligaments that support your head and neck.

As we age, our joints wear out (this is called osteoarthritis) and the discs in the spine dry up and flatten (this loosely describes Degenerative Disc Disease). You may experience pain that radiates into the top of the shoulders or in between your shoulder blades. Occasionally, a pinched nerve (called radiculopathy) may occur and you may feel tingling, pain, and/or numbness radiating into the arm, forearm, hand, and fingers.

As always, with persistent pain, you should be evaluated by a medical doctor and seek treatment from a trained physical therapist. Why not swing by Tomsic Physical Therapy, we can help you overcome this discomfort you’re facing?
