Neck Pain Q & A

When should I see a doctor about neck pain?

It’s common to wake up with a stiff or sore neck after sleeping in an unusual position. And because so many of us spend so much time hunched over a phone or computer keyboard, poor posture is causing more neck pain than ever. But that doesn’t mean all neck pain should be ignored or dissipates on its own. 

If your neck pain lasts more than a few days, don’t hesitate to talk to a doctor. And seek care right away if it comes with headaches, tingling, numbness, or pain that spreads to your extremities. Additionally, if you’re experiencing neck pain after an incident like a car crash or a slip-and-fall accident, make sure you seek treatment as soon as possible.

What’s causing my neck pain?

A number of injuries and conditions can cause neck pain. On top of that, poor posture throughout the day or sleeping in specific positions can cause painful muscle strain. In short, there are a range of possible causes of your neck pain.
