Neck Pain

Neck Pain Treatment Long Island | Richmond Hill NYNeck pain is characterized by stiffness and soreness in the neck region. As a result, simple movements like turning the head become difficult, and the pain can be quite debilitating for performing everyday activities such as driving or sports. Most neck cases are the result of awkward positioning during sleep or sudden movement. Both put strain on the neck muscles while creating tension and pain. More serious cases may include damage to the vertebrae or nerve disks. If neck pain doesn’t improve after a week of low activity combined with anti-inflammatory medication, it’s advised to get checked out by a doctor.
