What is Neck Pain?
Neck pain can be caused by many other issues with the spine. Neck pain occurs due to a muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back. Joint disruption in the neck creates pain, as does joint disruption in the upper back. Your head is supported by the lower neck and upper back, and it is these areas that commonly cause neck 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. Neck pain may also arise from many other physical and emotional health issues
Common Causes of Neck Pain
Whiplash is one of the most common injuries associated with neck pain. In an RTA there is a rapid deceleration in a collision causing the head, typically to be jolted forward then rapidly extended backwards. This usually results in tearing of muscle fibres in the neck which may lead to a low degree of inflammation in these muscles and chronic pain. It is unusual for serious bony injuries to occur in this situation, although this may happen and this will usually be revealed by X-rays. It is also uncommon for serious injury to the nerves or spinal cord in the neck to occur unless bones are broken. It is important to correctly adjust the headrest where possible, as this has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of injury from whiplash
