A bulging or herniation of one or more discs in the neck can cause pain when the disc presses on a nerve. This can cause pain that radiates to the shoulders, back or arms.
This occurs when the vertebral canal in the neck becomes narrow. As a result, the nerves and spinal cord become compressed and pain develops.
Cervical osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition that can cause neck pain and stiffness. Sometimes confusion is created when general terms are used interchangeably to refer to cervical osteoarthritis, including cervical spondylosis, degenerative joint disease, or simply neck arthritis.
Whiplash, also called neck sprain or neck strain, is injury to the neck. Whiplash is characterized by a collection of symptoms that occur following damage to the neck. In whiplash, the joints, discs, ligaments, cervical muscles, and nerve roots may become damaged.
A pinched nerve occurs when there is “compression” (pressure) on a nerve. Nerve compression often occurs when the nerve is pressed between tissues such as ligament, tendon or bone. Inflammation or pressure on a nerve root exiting the spine may cause neck pain.
A tension headache is the most common type of headache. It is pain or discomfort in the head, scalp, or neck, and is often associated with muscle tightness in these areas. Tension headaches occur when neck and scalp muscles become tense, or contract.
