Neck Pain Injury Lawyer

Neck problems can be caused by muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, or nerves in the neck. Neck pain is very common. Pain may also radiate from the shoulder, jaw, head, or upper arms.

Muscle strain or tension often causes neck pain. Falls or accidents, including car accidents, are a common cause of neck pain. Whiplash, a soft tissue injury to the neck, is also called neck sprain or strain.

Treatment depends on the cause, but may include applying ice, taking pain relievers, getting physical therapy or wearing a cervical collar, and very rarely, surgery may be required.

Treatment for any neck condition is recommended as soon as possible to minimize the danger of further aggravation. The following is a list of some of the conditions that cause neck pain, a visit to your doctor is recommended if you are experiencing neck pain:

  • Radiculopathy - pinched nerve, herniated, or slipped, disk. This causes pain down the arm often described as an electrical feeling.
  • Spinal Stenosis - narrowing of the nerve openings around spinal cord or nerve roots causing symptoms similar to a pinched nerve. The pain is either an aching or an electrical feeling down the arm.
  • Tendon, Ligament and Soft Tissue Pain - localized pain when an area is stretched, results in tenderness.
  • Spinal Instability - increased motion between vertebra, usually resulting from injury. Usually feels like tingling in neck or arms.
  • Non-Spinal Causes of Neck Pain - Pain imitating a neck injury, but from another cause. Shoulder and elbow injuries can refer pain to the neck area.
