Neck pain is a common complaint that can be caused by many things – including poor posture, arthritis, or a serious medical condition. Benign neck pain typically improves readily with at-home treatment. If yours persists, it’s important to seek professional help.


Muscle strain

Poor posture while reading, working at a computer, or using your cellphone can result in a painful muscle strain in the neck.


With osteoarthritis, the neck cartilage deteriorates over time. In response, your body forms bone spurs that limit your range of motion and cause pain.

Compressed nerve

This condition develops when a herniated disc or bone spur presses against nerves in the area.


A number of diseases, from meningitis to cancer, are associated with ongoing neck pain.


Step 1: Exam

Our neck pain diagnostic process always begins with an exam. After taking your medical history, we will test your range of motion and assess your neck for tenderness, weakness, and numbness.

Step 2: Imaging tests

From there, we will order an x-ray, CT scan, and/or an MRI, depending on your symptoms. An x-ray will allow us to check for bone spurs, while a CT scan and MRI can create detailed images of your soft tissues.

Step 3: Blood tests

In some cases, a blood test may also be necessary to check for an infection that could be related to your symptoms.
