Neck Pain

Neck pain is one of the most common areas of musculoskeletal pain. Especially, sitting in a fixed position (like a desk) for a long time, lying down, lying down and away from exercise increases the frequency of neck pain.

There may be many causes of neck pain. The posture and posture disorders are the most common reason, especially due to the increase in working time in the office and stresses in the neck, muscles, ligaments and joints in the neck area. However, many causes such as congenital anomalies, neck hernias, ankylosing spondylitis, rheumatic diseases, traumatic causes, calcification in the neck area, infectious diseases involving the spine, cancers and pain reflected from other regions can cause neck pain.

In many of them, clinical manifestations may differ (such as the relief of pain with rest, or relaxation with movement, accompanied by fever, night sweats, weakness, fatigue complaints, muscle weakness and sensory impairment, and urinary incontinence). serious laboratory, radiological and electrophysiological examinations may be required for diagnosis.

Neck hernias (disc herniations) are the most common cause or the first thing that comes to mind. Although it is proportionally small in the causes of neck pain, it is important as it is the most known and feared. In neck hernias, numbness, tingling-like complaints that spread to the arms and hands along with neck pain, weakness and feeling defects in some muscles in the arms and hands may accompany the clinic. Differential diagnosis is very important, as nerve compression can lead to similar complaints. In addition, the neck movements accompanying the pain may be due to muscle spasm or it may be a precursor of rheumatological diseases such as ankylosing spondylitis especially in young adults between the ages of 20-40.

Although treatment varies according to the underlying cause, successful results can be obtained with pharmacological treatments, exercise options and physical therapy methods in the vast majority of cases.
