Neck pain or cervicalgia may be short term or a chronic condition. Chronic neck pain is defined as pain that has persisted for at least 12 weeks. Some common causes include poor posture or workplace ergonomics, injury, degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, herniated discs, tension headaches, stress, muscle strains or sprains from overuse or improper use of the neck muscles, and pinched nerves. Associated symptoms may be stiffness or limited range of motion of the neck, headaches, tingling or numbness in the arms or hands, weakness in the arms or hands, muscle spasms or cramps, tenderness or soreness to the touch, fatigue or sleep disturbances.
