Nearly everyone is afflicted with neck pain at some point in their lives. Dr. Hitchcock in Athens, GA can help you find relief for your neck pain.

You may be experiencing neck pain and wonder if all neck pain is the same. It’s not.

Neck pain can be experienced with a long list of other problems. The combination of symptoms offers a clue as to why you have neck pain. Here are some of the other symptoms that are commonly experienced with neck discomfort:

  • Headache – This may occur because the meningeal lining of the brain has been irritated or due to trigger points within the muscles that refer pain in the head. Pinched nerves in the cervical spine can also cause cervicogenic headache.
  • Stiffness – Stiffness shows that the muscles are trying to prevent movement so that no added damage will occur to the underlying structures of the neck.
  • Poor range of motion – The inability to rotate your head to the left or right or to your shoulder is one of the causes of neck pain. This sign indicates that there is scar tissue or misaligned vertebrae in your neck.
  • Eye pain or vision problems – This symptom suggests that injury to your neck is more than just a strained muscle or a sprain.
  • Fatigue – Tiredness is another symptom that can indicate more serious health problems if it's combined with neck pain.
