Cervicalgia, or neck pain, is a widespread condition, with two-thirds of the population experiencing it at some point in their lives.

Although neck pain is felt in the neck, it can be caused by various spinal issues. Neck discomfort can be caused by muscle tension in the neck and upper back and pinching of nerves exiting the cervical vertebrae. Joint disruption in the neck, as well as joint disruption in the upper back, causes discomfort.

The lower neck and upper back support the head, and it is these regions often cause neck discomfort. The top three joints in the neck are where the neck and head move the most. The lower neck joints and those in the upper back provide a stable foundation for the head to rest on. When this support system is compromised, the muscles in the region tense, resulting in neck discomfort.

As of 2010, around 5% of the world’s population suffers from neck discomfort.

Neck pain can originate in any of the structures in the neck, including the vascular, neural, airway, digestive, and musculature/skeletal systems, or it can be referred from elsewhere in the body.

The following are some of the most common and severe causes of neck discomfort (in order of severity):

  • Dissection of the carotid artery
  • Acute coronary syndrome-related pain
  • Cancer of the head and neck
  • Retropharyngeal abscess, epiglottitis, and other infections
  • Protruding or bulging discs, or severe prolapse, are signs of spinal disc herniation.
  • Spondylosis, osteophytes, and degenerative arthritis
  • A narrowing of the spinal canal is known as spinal stenosis.
  • The following are some of the more common and minor causes of neck pain:
  • Physical and mental stress are both sources of stress.
  • Long-term postures — many individuals fall asleep in chairs and sofas and wake up with stiff necks.
  • Car accidents, athletic activities, and small injuries daily are all examples of minor injuries and falls.

Although there are various causes, the most may be readily resolved with either expert assistance or self-help tips and approaches.

Poor sleeping posture, torticollis, head injury, rheumatoid arthritis, Carotidynia, congenital cervical rib, mononucleosis, rubella, certain cancers, ankylosing spondylitis, cervical spine fracture, esophageal trauma, subarachnoid hemorrhage, lymphadenitis, thyroid trauma, and tracheal trauma are some of the other possible causes.

Neck discomfort is treated differently depending on the reason. Neck discomfort may be managed conservatively for the great majority of people. Applying heat or cold to relieve discomfort is one of the recommendations. Medication, body mechanics training, ergonomic reform, and physical therapy are all typical therapies. Patient education may be used as part of the treatment, although there is no proof that it is functional.

Pain is usually treated with analgesics like acetaminophen or NSAIDs. However, according to a 2017 analysis, paracetamol is ineffective, and NSAIDs are only marginally beneficial.

Muscle relaxants may be prescribed as well. However, one research found that cyclobenzaprine, a muscle relaxant, was ineffective in treating acute cervical strain (as opposed to neck pain from other etiologies or chronic neck pain).
