  • Vertebrae & Discs Degeneration: As a person gets older, the vertebrae and discs would begin to degenerate. When this happens, the person begins to feel severe and lasting pain in the neck. Some other medical conditions may cause the vertebrae and discs of the neck to wear down. Some of these conditions include arthritis, inflammation, pinched nerves, and cervical fractures.
  • Poor Sleeping Position: At times, some people wake up feeling sharp pains in the shoulders, back, or neck. This is usually caused by their sleeping patterns; how they position their head, the type of pillow they use, or the hardness of the mattress they sleep on.
  • Non-Specific Neck Pain: Sometimes, it is quite difficult to pinpoint the actual cause of neck pain. A minor sprain or tear to the muscle tissue may cause non-specific neck pains. This is the most common cause of neck pain. This kind of neck pain may be due to bad posture or improper alignment of the neck for a period of time.
  • Stress & Anxiety: Stress causes tightening of the muscles. This may cause a painful sensation in the neck and back because of the excessive strain caused by stress.
  • Torticollis: This is a medical condition that causes the head to be bent to one side. It is believed to be caused by strains of the ligaments or muscle in the neck. When the neck is exposed to cold temperatures for a long time, torticollis can occur. This medical condition usually occurs overnight and will subside after a few days. Sometimes, torticollis may be a symptom of other health issues such as tumors and infections which may be severe.
  • Brachial Plexus Injury: The brachial plexus is a network of nerves lying mostly in the armpit and supply nerves to the chest, shoulder, and arm. Neck pain may occur if the nerves that connect the spinal cord to the hand damages. A neck injury that affects the brachial plexus may also cause pain in the hand.
  • Whiplash: This is an injury to the neck which is caused by a sudden backward movement of the head. In this case, the head lurches forward and goes back into place instantaneously. Whiplash can occur in car accidents, sporting activities, or other sudden movements.


Neck pains which range between mild to moderate may be treated through self-care within a period of one month. If the pain becomes severe and persistent, other forms of neck pain treatment may be recommended. Stretching and exercise help to enhance neck pain relief.
