Common Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain can be caused by dysfunction in a range of different structures within the neck. The two most common structures that cause pain are the discs and the facet joints. Once these structures are affected they cause the surrounding muscles and ligaments to become tight, causing even more discomfort within the area.
Common causes of neck pain can also specifically relate to muscle or soft tissue sprains where the body has been exposed to unexpected forces, through sporting activities or even from instances where an awkward position is adopted for a prolonged period of time.
