Frequently Asked Questions About Neck Pain

Can neck pain be a sign of something serious?
Neck pain alone is rarely a symptom of a more serious problem. Seek medical care if your neck pain is present with numbness, loss of strength in your arms or hands or if you have shooting pain into your shoulder or down your arm.
How does a pinched nerve in the neck feel?
A pinched nerve will usually present with pain referred into the arm, and/or upper back, and be associated with numbness, pins & needles or tingling. Pain quality may vary from unpleasant sharp pain, to a dull ache. Referred pain in the arm may be triggered by head movements such as twisting and looking upward
When should I be worried of neck pain?
If your neck pain is intense, and associated with headache, and it's the worst pain you've ever had, and different than your usual pain, seek urgent medical care
How should I sleep with neck pain?
Try and choose a pillow that keeps you neck supported both on your side and lying on your back. Avoid stomach sleeping.
How do you loosen tight neck muscles?
Gentle stretching and exercise strategies such as chin retractions, postural exercise or other self care tools can help. Consult with a physiotherapist today to get personalized care.
Should I sleep without a pillow after neck therapy?
