Our neck is one of the most critical parts of our body that performs major functions. It protects the nerves that connect our brain while also providing support and mobility for our head. Once you endure a neck injury, you begin to realize just how valuable the neck is. The pain and immobility in the neck is an extremely frustrating condition. Unfortunately, it’s one of the most common conditions that we see at The Regenerative Medicine Institute of Illinois. Depending on the severity of your neck pain or injury, there are a number of common symptoms that include:
- Tingling in the neck
- Sharp pain in the neck
- Difficult moving the head
Consistent headaches, or migraines, can also be common because of your neck’s relationship with your brain. If not properly treated, neck injuries can also lead to symptoms of pain, or numbness, and loss of strength in your hands and arms.
Joint arthritis, disc degeneration, or inflamed nerves could be the result of your neck pain or injury. There are many causes of neck injuries, these include: Sports injuries, trauma from accidents, poor posture and poor sleeping position. More serious causes of neck pain and injury could be a result of osteoarthritis, herniated discs, myelopathy, and stenosis.
