Colorado Springs Neck Pain And What You Can Do About It
The most common form of back pain is not neck pain, but rather low back pain. However, neck pain may be the most debilitating and have the worst consequences for your health.
This is for two reasons:
1) Neck pain can dramatically alter your state of mind due to its close proximity to the brain. This can result in "screaming" headaches, extreme restricted movement, and pain that can make you pass out or sleep all day.
2) Your neck pain is also a sign of dysfunction in the neck, which carries vital communication from the brain through the brain stem to the spinal cord to the rest of your body. Neck pain is cause by improper function and pressure on nerves in the neck - which is the source of the rest of your body's communication (consider how neck injuries can paralyze the legs). This pressure can also restrict blood flow to the brain.
What Can Cause Neck Pain?
Due to the vulnerability of the neck, it is prone to injury.
Common causes of neck pain are car accidents, whiplash, sports injuries, military injuries, on-the-job injuries, sleeping wrong and injuries during exercise.
From a functional standpoint, this may be caused by muscular spasms, a disc herniation (also called a "slipped, bulging, or hot" disc), disjointed spine, sickness (as your lymph glands swell to help the body process sickness, it can put pressure on the neck), lose of the natural curvature of the cervical spine, and a few others.
