Cervicogenic headache originates in the neck, causing referred pain in the head.
Acupuncture can alleviate chronic stiff neck by inserting fine needles into specific points to restore energy flow and reduce pain and tension.
Neck pain arises from poor posture, muscle strain, or injury in the cervical region. Ergonomics and exercises aid prevention and relief.
Incorporating more fruits, vegetables, and other foods that are high in antioxidants may help to reduce inflammation induced pain in the body.
Brachial neuritis is a rare condition with symptoms of sudden-onset, severe shoulder pain and arm pain, followed by weakness and/or numbness down the arm.
Physicians can typically diagnose brachial neuritis through a patient history and physical exam, but more complex cases may require medical imaging and electrodiagnostic tests.
The initial symptom of brachial neuritis is a sudden onset of severe pain in the shoulder and/or upper arm. Later on shoulder weakness, tingling and numbness may also develop.
Pain management using medication, heat and ice therapy, rest, or TENs is often the first line of treatment for brachial neuritis. Physical therapy and surgery may also be recommended by a physician.
