What are the symptoms of neck pain?

Neck pain may be associated with the following signs and symptoms:

  • Tightness and spasms in the neck
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Headache
  • Stiffness
  • Sharp or stabbing pain in one location

Pain in the neck may be caused by muscles strains from staying in a certain position for an extended period of time, compressed or reduced height joints, automobile accident injuries, compressed nerves, and certain diseases. For example, many patients suffer from “text neck” from bending over their phones or tablets for too long. Neck pain can happen suddenly after an injury or it can develop gradually after years of joint wear and tear or poor posture.

Neck pain is generally diagnosed after undergoing a selection of tests determined by your doctor, which may include X-rays, a CT scan, an MRI, and other electrodiagnostic studies.
