In some instances, New Life Wellness Center might order tests to help diagnose your condition. An x-ray can show narrowed disc space, fractures, bone spurs, or arthritis. A computerized axial tomography scan (a CT or CAT scan) or a magnetic resonance imaging test (an MRI) can show bulging discs and herniations. If nerve damage is suspected, New Life Wellness Center may order a special test called electromyography (an EMG) to measure how quickly your nerves respond. Based on test results, you may be referred to the appropriate medical physician or specialist.
Why do millions of Americans suffer from neck pain?
Our neck, also called the cervical spine, begins at the base of the skull and contains seven small vertebrae. Incredibly, the cervical spine supports the full weight of your head, which is on average about 12 pounds. While the cervical spine can move your head in nearly every direction, this flexibility makes the neck very susceptible to pain and injury.
The neck's susceptibility to injury is due in part to biomechanics. Activities and events that affect cervical biomechanics include extended sitting, repetitive movement, accidents, falls and blows to the body or head, normal aging, and everyday wear and tear. Neck pain can be very bothersome, and it can have a variety of causes.
Aging, poor posture, osteoarthritis, accidents and/or injuries and obesity are also linked to chronic neck pain.
