Neck Pain is a Real Pain in the Neck!

By Christian Goodman

I began to alter my upright position to a sort of curved stance due to severe neck and upper back pain due to some automobile accident that happened years ago. Some unexpected accidents like this can change life for ever due to pain it brings.

I have friends and clients whose neck pain causes and symptoms are extremely diverse as far as causes and amount of pain involved.

Common causes are injury or trauma to the neck (e.g., whiplash) disc and/or nerve problems within the neck and arthritis. Triggers can include stress, sleeping in an awkward position and prolonged strain on the neck as with sitting at one's computer for too long, etc.

Neck pain can last for more than three months and sometimes it has no definitive diagnosis. fibromyalgia is one of the more common causes.

muscle stiffness, soreness, stiff to the touch, acute pain strong enough to force the neck to turn to one side (torticollis) these are the ways the pain has been described by sufferers. pain in the base of the skull, one or both-sided headaches, pain radiating down the back and/or arms, tingling arms and/or fingers and general weakness in the neck and/or arms.

Neck pain is found in women more than men

While most type of neck pain is more discomforting and disappears within a day or two, there are rare but potentially life-threatening situations when neck pain is a symptom of something larger.

Such condition is called meningitis. It is an inflammation of the brain and spinal cord who's causes can be both viral (most common but not as devastating) and bacterial (less common but an extremely life-threatening disease).

In addition to neck stiffness you can also get the symptoms like sudden rash development, fever, pain in bending the neck, nausea, vomiting, sensitivity to light and severe back pain.

Head T\trauma can also cause neck pain. And other most common symptoms are supposed to be headache, nausea, vomiting, loss or complications in vision, hearing or balance, pain localized behind one eye and weakness in arm and/or leg muscles.

To avoid neck pain it's important to go about your daily routine as much as possible. That is of course, unless your daily repetitive routine is the cause. It might be time to consider an ergonomic solution. This can be done to avoid neck pain.

If you are given a neck collar, try not to use it more than a few days. Only daily exercise will help you to improve the strength of your neck muscles.

My Neck Pain Relief program addresses this in an all natural way. It's coming very soon and I hope you'll give these exercises a chance - as I did and realize there is in fact an end to such a pain in the neck!. An important thing to understand about pain such as this is that all the muscles around your neck, back and head are connected together. It is extremely important not to ignore those muscles.
