Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Neck Pain

Neck Pain

Neck pain or stiffness can happen for a variety of reasons. Many people experience neck pain or stiffness occasionally. In many cases, it's due to poor posture or overuse. Sometimes, neck pain is caused by injury from a fall, contact sports, or whiplash.

Neck pain symptoms can vary widely. The pain may just be a mild nuisance, or it could be so excruciating that a person avoids any excessive movement.

Oftentimes neck pain is located in one spot and goes away on its own within a few days or weeks. But in some cases the pain becomes constant or radiates into other body parts, such as the shoulder and arms.
