Neck Pain

Chronic Neck and Arm Pain Can Affect Your Quality of Life

Neck pain can occur anywhere from the bottom of the head to the top of the shoulders. It can also spread to your upper back or arms, limiting how much you can move your head and neck. Chronic neck pain can leave you feeling fatigued, anxious and depressed, and seriously diminish your quality of life. Some patients complain of numbness and tingling in the hands, or they may have trouble sleeping or trouble driving because of neck stiffness.

What is Neck Pain?

Neck pain is a common complaint we see in our offices in the greater Dallas area. From basic neck ache to chronic radiating pain, types of pain, as well as their sources, vary widely. Something to consider when suffering from neck pain is that many injuries may cause referred pain. This means even if you feel pain in your neck, the actual injury you have may be located elsewhere.

What Causes Neck Pain?

A pinched nerve in the neck can cause pain and soreness in other parts of the body, including muscle soreness in the neck, the top of the shoulders, or shoulder blades. More than this, you could experience pain in the arms, hands, or in the form of headaches.

Other Causes Include:

  • Muscle strains
  • Trauma or injury to the muscles, tendons, or ligaments
  • Herniated cervical disc
  • Stress

What are the Symptoms of Neck Pain?

Neck pain may be a symptom of trauma due to job-related injury or strenuous activity from repetitive or heavy lifting. Neck pain sufferers may feel stiffness or knots in the neck, limiting the range of motion.
