Neck pain is felt in the upper part of the spine. It is a sign that the joints, muscles or other parts of the neck are injured, strained or not working properly. Neck pain is most common, with about one in 10 people having it at any given time, but it is not usually a sign of arthritis or any other serious medical problem.
In most cases, if treated early, all necks can respond well to treatment in a few days. Heat, massage, and mobilization can be used to loosen the neck joints and reduce the pain and muscle spasm. In rare cases, particularly for people over 40, or very rarely in infants, wry neck can have underlying neurological involvement. Your doctor or neck pain doctor specialist can help with this diagnosis with advanced treatments.
