Neck pain

Specialty of Neurology

Cervical pain (neck pain) occurs in the upper part of the spine, in the cervical area. It is a pain usually caused by trauma, illness, progressive deterioration, bad posture or emotional tension. Specifically, this cervical pain can be caused by any anomaly or tension in this area of the spine, both in the muscles, ligaments, discs or nerves, as well as in the vertebrae and in their joints. The symptoms of cervical pain may be of varying degrees, from mild discomfort to acute, sudden and intense pain. It can also become chronic neck pain when it lasts for more than three months, and it is more common in women than in men. In addition, in patients suffering from persistent cervical pain and headaches, consultation with a physician and physiotherapeutic treatment is recommended.
