Neck Pain in Pompano Beach, Coral Springs, Fort Lauderdale, FL
Neck pain can be caused by any movement that overworks the muscles and ligaments in the neck. This could be cause by activities such as sports, work and chores. However, neck pain can also be caused by stress, trauma, or the flu. Neck pain symptoms include stiffness and severe pain in the neck and shoulder area.
A neck strain can be different then just mild neck pain. When the neck muscles suffer from a spasm or if the joints in the neck are inflamed, it could result in a neck strain. This also can include a pinched nerve in the neck, which can send pain through the entire arm and fingers. While mild neck strains are generally treated with at home remedies, more severe neck strains may need prescription medication to alleviate pain.
It is also possible to dislocate and fracture the bones in the neck, or the top part of the spine, by injury. In this case, it could lead to paralysis, or loss of movement in the neck, which should be immediately addressed by Dr. Lapco.
