Neck conditions you may be suffering from
If you are dealing with neck pain and feel that it is persistent or quite severe then you should always see a doctor to get a diagnosis and find out what you can do to make the pain better or heal the problem altogether.
You can be experiencing neck pain for a variety of reasons, from a whiplash injury in Cockermouth to a more serious spinal condition, and it is best to find out what you may be suffering from via your doctor that try to deal with the pain on your own for too long.
If you do leave it and are dealing with something that requires treatment, you may just make the problem worse by not doing something about it straight away.
A whiplash injury in Cockermouth is one of the major causes of neck pain, and one which can be easily dealt with and treated to get you back to normal.
On top of this, if you have sustained a whiplash injury as the result of an accident, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries, making your recovery easier emotionally as well as physically.
A whiplash injury is caused by hyperextension of the neck as the result of an impact which forces your neck forwards and backwards, side to side, or a severe rotation.
This is a common condition that older people suffer from and is caused by the discs between the vertebrae in the neck becoming thinner and the spaces between the bones becoming narrower.
This causes bone spurs to form which can be uncomfortable. By the age of 65 most people will have spondylosis in some form, so it is a condition to look out or as you get older.
Many types of neck pain are simply caused by tension in the tendons and ligaments of the neck, and these can all be dealt with easily by changing posture, massage or trying to relieve stress in day to day life.
It is still worth seeing a doctor to rule out anything more serious.
