Neck Pain From Serious Neck Injury
Collisions that occur during sporting events, slips, falls or Automobile crashes can all have a damaging effect on your neck and back. Reduction of the normal neck (Cervical) curve, repetitive micro-traumas ie. long hours on the computer, driving in traffic, traveling by car or plane, lifting heavy or awkward objects or constant stress of work, family and everyday life can also be directly related to neck pain and back pain.
Pain can be dull or sharp, boring or burning, constant or intermittent. As the problem progresses, numbness and or tingling can be felt in the upper back, arms and even in to the hands.
NOTE: Many patients who come in for Carpal Tunnel treatment are amazed to find out that the problem is actually a pinching of the nerves in the neck and NOT a wrist or hand problem.
