Neck pain - Definition


Definition


Many people suffer from neck pain. It is located in the neck and is mainly due to two causes: one is functional and concerns the muscles in the neck, and the other proceeds from progressive degeneration of the discs between the vertebrae: this is called cervical arthrosis. A herniated disc, a protrusion of the intervertebral disc outside its normal range, may be responsible for the compression of the nerves passing nearby and cause neck pain going into the arms: this is cervical radiculopathy. Moreover, traumatic causes can generate fractures of the vertebrae, for which immobilization of the neck using a cervical collar is used until an X-ray can eliminate this hypothesis.
