How Should We Manage Your Neck Pain?

The first step in managing neck pain is to figure out the source of your symptoms. We have to know the diagnosis of your problem.

The second step is to treat the body part affected. How you manage depends on the tissue affected. The usual problem comes from muscles, joints, discs, and other soft tissues. It is easier to handle if you know what structure you need to treat.

Finally, you have to strengthen your muscles and correct your body mechanics. The common neglected causes are muscle weakness, and posture.

1. Cervicalgia
2. Cervical Radiculopathy
