Seven Types of Neck Pain

 

There are seven common types of neck pain and usually respond very well to physical therapist directed treatment. The different types are:

 

  • Muscle Pain
  • Muscle Spasm
  • Headache
  • Facet Joint Pain
  • Nerve Pain
  • Referred Pain
  • Bone Pain

 

What You Need to Know – Don’t Insist on an MRI

 

Before you go down the path of expensive imaging studies like MRI and CT scans, you should know that these types of tests often produce false positives.

 

What this means is the test might indicate that something is wrong in your neck but it a) isn’t the source of your pain or b) doesn’t require immediate surgery.
