Is Your Neck Pain A Serious Issue?
Neck pain is marked by feelings of discomfort anywhere in the cervical region – from the bottom of the head to the top of your shoulders. This pain can remain in certain problem areas, or it can begin to radiate through your upper back, shoulders, and arms. Sometimes it’s only a minor issue, and sometimes it feels completely immobilizing.
At Greater Austin Pain Center, we do whatever is necessary to get to the bottom of your neck pain and find a solution.
The neck contains a group of important muscles – the erector spinae, the levator scapulae, the splenius cervicis, the trapezius, and more. While these muscles usually work in harmony throughout your everyday life, certain factors can turn them into problem areas for neck pain. Muscular discomforts like strains and sprains can be common, especially for those who perform manual labor or sleep in uncomfortable positions. Issues like arthritis, herniated discs, whiplash-associated injuries, and sports injuries like stingers can also play a part in neck pain.
