Back: Neck pain
What is neck pain (cervicalgia)?
Neck pain, sometimes called cervicalgia, is pain in or around your spine just beneath your head.
You might have neck pain felt mostly in your neck or radicular neck pain, that shoots into other areas like your shoulders or arms. It can be acute, lasting from days to six weeks or chronic, lasting longer than three months.
Neck pain, when severe can interrupt with your daily activities and reduce your quality of life if it’s not treated. Most causes of neck pain aren’t serious and improve with osteopathic treatments, exercise and stress management.
