    Neck Injury Treatment

    Any injury involving the neck. Accidents are a major cause of neck injuries. Neck injuries may cause pain or may affect a person’s ability to walk or stand normally if the spinal cord is also involved. The spinal cord is the main pathway for information connecting the brain and peripheral nervous system. The length of the spinal cord is much shorter than the length of the bony spinal column. The human spinal cord extends from the medulla oblongata and continues through the conus medullaris near the first or second lumbar vertebra, terminating in a fibrous extension known as the filum terminale. The back and neck can sustain a number of injuries, including muscle strains, bone fractures, ligament tears, and nerve damage. Some common back and neck injuries include: Compression fractu

    Neck Arthritis

    Over a period of time, poor neck posture may cause joints to deteriorate, resulting in neck arthritis. The sensitive nerves can become pinched. Soft tissues like muscles and ligaments stiffen and become hard and inelastic as they try to assume a more supportive function. Because the joints become unstable the ligaments which attach bones harden and try to act like bones. Understand your arthritis Osteoarthritis: the most frequently diagnosed form of arthritis is considered one of the “ailments” of old age caused by normal wear and tear on joints. It affects both men and women equally and usually involves symptoms of stiffness and joint pain. Joints which are weight-bearing or under frequent strain are the most frequently affected, and include the knees, hips, spine, and hands.

    Neck Pain Symptoms

    Pain nerve endings are located in the various ligaments and muscles in the neck, as well as in the facet and unco-vertebral joints and the outer layer of the disc (annulus fibrosis). When these structures are irritated, strained or inflamed, pain can be referred upwards to the base of the occiput or to between the shoulder blades. This is referred pain which needs to be distinguished from radicular pain which goes into the arms. Pain from the Neck Muscles or Ligaments Strain or sprain: Strain and sprain of the neck muscles are among the most common causes of neck pain.

    Neck Pain from Stress

    Mental stress has always had its physical component. In fact, that’s what the stress response is: the visceral priming of the body to either fight or run away from a perceived danger. Less well recognized is that even chronic, unpleasant stress, the kind that’s so constant you consider it normal, can cause aches and pains that you might not attribute to emotions. The source of stress-related pain lies in the brain, which, when you feel under the gun, triggers the release of cortisol, adrenaline and other hormones that prepare the body for action by, for example, increasing heart rate, blood pressure and respiration. Less noticeably, these hormones also make muscles tense up, which can cause aches and irritate nerves. The body stress stored in the neck structures may cause pain

    Pain in the Right Side

    These pains are symptoms, which left untended can cause lost nights of sleep and the sensation of shortness of breath, or the feeling that an anxiety attack is around the corner.

In some cases, this may represent a true “muscle strain”, or “pulled muscle” involving the muscles around the spine of the neck. However, muscle spasm is a common symptom that can result when other areas of the neck are injured. Problems that are commonly referred to as a muscle strain may also involve injury of other soft tissues of the neck including: the disc, the lig
