Orthopaedic Conditions- Neck Pain

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:

  • Use recreation methods and regular exercise to prevent unnecessary stress and tension to the neck muscles.
  • Learn stretching exercises for your neck and upper body. Stretch every day, especially before and after exercise. Do It with the help of a physician.
  • If you tend to get neck pain from exercise, apply ice to your neck after physical activity.
  • Use good posture, especially if you sit at a desk all day. Always keep your back supported. Adjust your computer monitor to eye level. This prevents you from one angle view.
  • If you work at a computer, stretch your neck every hour or so.
  • When reading or typing from documents at your desk, place them in a holder at eye level.
  • Assess your sleeping conditions. Make sure your pillow is properly and comfortably supporting your head and neck.

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.
