Neckpaincanbeaconstant ache or sharp pain with movement, stopping you fromenjoying life’sactivities. Neck pain is very common affecting approximately 2/3 rds of the population at onepointoranother.People with neck pain suffer mainly from one of the following conditions: Degenerative Disc Disease. The discs are the fluid filled sacs between the bones of your neck. The normal aging process shrinks the discs and dries them out. Repeated stress and strain also weakens the tissues that make up a disc. When this happens, the disc loses its ability to absorb shock. In turn, this causes rubbing and changes in the shape of the joints in your neck, which can be painful. Muscle Strain. When there is an injury to the neck or you overuse the shoulder and neck muscles, a strain can occur.

Mechanical Neck Pain. Mechanical pain usually starts from changes in the neck joints. As discs start to collapse, the space between the neck bones narrows, and the joints may become inflamed.The pain is usually chronic and is typically felt in the middle part of the neck. However, it may spread from the neck into the upper back or to the outside of the shoulder in some cases. Radiculopathy. Pressure or irritation on or around the nerves of the neck can affect the nerves’ electrical signals.The pressure or irritation can be felt as numbness on the skin, weakness in the muscles or pain along the path of the nerve. Weakness in the spine muscles can cause abnormal pressure on the nerves and increased chance of radiculopathy.
