TOP CERVICAL PAIN REASONS:
Here are some of the top causes for cervical pain.
Overuse of the neck– some people’s everyday work involves tedious movements that put pressure on the spine, resulting in easy wear and tear. This does not have to involve just physical work like heavy lifting, but also desk jobs where posture can be a problem.
Injury– an injury in your neck or spine region is an instant aggregator for cervical pain.
Herniated discs– this kind of cervical pain occurs when spinal discs develop cracks in them. These cracks give way to leakage of the internal cushioning material which can in result, pressurize the spinal nerves and cords. Cervical pain symptoms caused due to this can bring numbness and pain in the arms.
Dehydrated spinal discs– the discs between your spine can dry out at times and thus the rubbing of them can cause chronic cervical pain.
Bone spurs– this cervical pain is caused due to the overgrowth of a bone that can press against other the spinal nerves and spinal cord and get painful.
In addition to these causes, there may be other regular bad body postures. This may be due to bad seating arrangements, improper mattress structures and more.
