Cervical Pain: Symptoms, Causes, Treatment & Home Remedies

Cervical pain

To understand cervical pain, it is important to first know about cervical. It is the neck region of the backbone or spinal column. It is majorly comprised of the first seven bones (C1-C7). The structures that are around the cervical spine are nerves, muscles, intervertebral disks, the spinal cord, ligaments, and tendons. These all provide support to the neck and allows mobility. The cervical discs help in absorbing the shock. Any inflammation, injury or abnormality could lead to neck stiffness or pain. 

Cervical osteoarthritis or spondylolysis is a condition that encompasses changes in discs, joints, or bones that are connected to the neck and causes cervical pain. The major reason for the pain is wear and tear of bones, ligaments, and cartilage which are mostly found in older people. However, there are several other factors too and thus occur in adults as well. Neck stiffness and pain are its main symptoms. The severity of pain varies and according to that treatment methods also vary. Physical therapy; heat, massage, ice; the soft collar is some of the approaches that are used to treat it.

Causes for cervical pain 

  • Injury- An inflammation or injury in the spine region is one of the main reasons for cervical pain. 
  • Herniated discs- It happens when cracks develop in spinal discs. Because of these spinal cracks, internal cushioning material leaks out which leads to pressurize on the spinal cords and nerves which leads to pain and numbness in the arms. 
  • Overuse of neck- Everyday work of some people that includes intense movement of the neck puts high pressure on it sometimes resulting in neck pain. The work includes physical as well as desk jobs where improper posture might be a problem. Improper mattress structure and bad sitting arrangements are also the cause of cervical pain
  • Bone spurs- Overgrowth of bone results in this type of condition in which a little pressure results in severe cervical pain. 
  • Dehydrated spinal discs- Discs that are present between the spine could dry out and rubbing it could cause severe cervical pain.
