Neck pain is common, especially in people who spend most of their day bent over a computer or smartphone. This pain may cause a dull muscle ache that resolves with a little self-care. But over time, the constant strain of your bent head on your neck muscles and spine may lead to chronic neck pain.
Whether acute or chronic, the severity of your neck pain may vary, ranging from an annoying ache to sharp pain that radiates into your shoulders and arms. Neck pain may also cause headaches.
Your neck supports the weight and movement of your head, which makes it more vulnerable to injuries and conditions that lead to neck pain. Common causes of neck pain include:
Whiplash is also a common cause of neck pain. This injury is a forceful movement of your head in a back-and-forth motion, which stresses and strains the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and vertebrae in your spine.
When left untreated, whiplash may lead to chronic neck pain.
