Neck Pain

What causes neck pain?

One of the most common causes of neck pain is muscle strain from poor posture. If you’re looking down at a computer all day for work, for instance, your neck has to support the entire weight of your head. If your head is forward at a 45-degree angle, the added strain results in about 45 pounds of weight your neck needs to support.

Sometimes though, neck pain is a result of a more complex underlying issue. Your neck pain could be caused by:

  • Arthritis
  • Bone spurs
  • Osteoporosis
  • Herniated discs
  • Nerve compression

Since neck pain can be a side effect of a serious condition, it isn’t something you should ignore even one more day.

When should I see a doctor for neck pain?

Without proper treatment, your neck pain is highly likely to worsen. Dr. Ojeyemi and Dr. Roh encourage you to come into Orthopedic & Wellness for a neck pain examination if you’re experiencing:

  • Neck pain from a whiplash injury
  • Numbness, tingling, and/or weakness in your limbs
  • Neck pain that isn’t improving or is worsening after several days
  • Neck pain that’s keeping you from work or enjoyable activities

At Orthopedic & Wellness, you can undergo comprehensive diagnostic testing and imaging, including X-rays, right in the office. Dr. Ojeyemi or Dr. Roh can often diagnose you on the spot, so you can get started on your neck pain treatment right away.
