Neck pain is pain that occurs in the cervical spine. This region comprises the first seven vertebrae of the spinal column, which are susceptible to any number of conditions that may produce discomfort. For instance, a jarring car accident may cause a herniated disc, leading to considerable neck pain. If the herniation presses upon surrounding nerves, it may also impact the function of the arms and hands. Though sudden injury is a common source behind neck pain, recurring activities can also cause ongoing neck pain. Sitting at a desk with inferior ergonomic conditions can cause the neck to strain in an unnatural pose, inducing discomfort. In some cases, poor sleeping habits can also prompt neck pain.
