Neck Pain Health Center
Most episodes of neck pain are due to muscle strain or soft tissue sprain (ligaments, tendons), but it can also be caused by a sudden force (whiplash). These types of neck pain often improve with time and non-surgical care such as medication and chiropractic manipulation. But if neck pain continues or worsens, there is often a specific condition that requires treatment. Cervical degenerative disc disease, cervical herniated disc, cervical stenosis, and cervical arthritis can all lead to neck pain.
