Cervical facet joint degeneration stems from aging, cartilage breakdown, and inflammation, leading to neck pain and limited mobility.
Text neck induces pain by straining neck muscles, altering spinal alignment from prolonged forward head posture, and possibly compressing nerves.
Meningitis causes neck pain and stiffness by inflaming the protective membranes around the brain and spinal cord, leading to discomfort and limited movement.
As spinal degeneration occurs, neck bones develop osteophytes, and soft tissues stiffen, contributing to pain and restricted movement.
Neck pain and headache can co-occur due to shared muscle tension, nerve pathways, and structural issues.
Poor posture strains neck muscles, misaligns spine, adds pressure; results in discomfort, pain, and potential chronic issues.
The cervical spine undergoes wear and tear over time, leading to degeneration of discs, reduced flexibility, and potential nerve issues with age.
Measure and correct forward head posture through self-assessment, exercises, ergonomic adjustments.
Treat morning stiff neck with gentle stretches, warm compresses, and gradual movement. Seek medical advice if pain persists.
Treating chronic stiff neck involves gentle stretches, heat or ice therapy, pain relievers, and seeking medical advice if symptoms persist.
