What is neck pain?

If you’ve ever gone through the day with a kink in your neck after sleeping in an unusual position, then you know how much of an inconvenience neck pain can be. Your neck contains your cervical spine as well as supportive muscles and ligaments surrounding it. Any part of your neck can withstand damage and cause neck pain, which often appears along with stiffness.

At Earthy Ruby, the team evaluates your neck pain to develop a fitting treatment plan. The wellness services and therapies at Earthy Ruby can ease your neck pain without medications or surgery, and many of them come with other benefits like increased circulation or stress relief.

What causes neck pain?

Both injuries and medical conditions can cause prolonged or recurring neck pain, which can get worse the longer you go without treatment. Home care, like rest, ice, and nonprescription medications, can relieve mild neck pain, but professional care may be necessary if your neck pain doesn’t improve.

Some of the most common conditions and injuries that lead to pain in the neck are:

  • Muscle strain
  • Compressed nerves
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Degenerative disc disease

Whiplash injuries are soft tissue injuries, including muscle strains, that happen when your neck jolts forward, backward, or to the side. These injuries often happen during car accidents and are a major source of neck pain.
