Home>>Orthopaedic Conditions- Neck Pain
The neck (cervical spine) is combined of vertebrae that begin in the upper torso and end at the base of the skull. Neck pain may result from abnormalities in the soft tissues—the muscles, ligaments, and nerves—as well as in bones and joints of the spine.
The common cause of neck pain is tension and strain.
Neck pain can be prevented by certain methods:
Treatments and procedures:
The disk acts as a shock absorber between the bones in the neck. In cervical disk degeneration, normally found on above 40 aged people,the normal gelatin-like center of the disk degenerates and the space between the vertebrae narrows.
The most common neck injuries involve the soft tissues: the muscles and ligaments. Severe neck injuries with a fracture or dislocation of the neck may damage the spinal cord and cause paralysis.
