Understanding the Causes Of Your Neck Pain

A very common symptom of neck pain is experiencing discomfort within the right side of your neck. This pain can be because of a muscle strain or another cause. If the pain persists, it is best to see a doctor, as using home remedies can only treat so much.*

The neck consists of spinal bones, muscles and other tissues. Therefore this makes it a vital part of the human body. However, it is exposed and at risk of injury more than other parts of the body. It also tends to strain due to how people are prone to move it constantly every day. Along with neck pain, it’s possible for a person to experience pain in connected areas; these being: shoulders, back, jaw and head.*

Treatment Options For Neck Pain

With mild or moderate neck pain, you can usually treat the symptoms at home. Concerning some cases, neck pain will clear up quickly over the course of a day, while sometimes, others may require a few weeks.* A few possible methods to ease pain without seeking medical attention at first are as follows:

  • Over-the-counter pain relievers and anti-inflammatory medications
  • Applying heat such as: heating pads, within baths, or warm towels
  • Massaging or stretching the neck
  • Practicing good posture when doing any activity. Such as sitting, standing and walking
  • Sleeping is a neck supported position

Not always will home remedies work, however, and seeking medical treatment is the next step. The treatment, however, will always depend on if there are underlying conditions for the cause of the pain.*

Doctors may recommend the following*:

  • Muscle relaxants
  • Injecting medications directly into the neck
  • Physical or occupational therapy
  • Surgery

 

*The effectiveness of diagnosis and treatment will vary by patient and condition. New York Spine Institute does not guarantee certain results.
