Most of us experience neck pain at some point in our lives or, in fact, maybe even experiencing it right now. Symptoms of discomfort, rigidity, and muscle tightness often are present with neck pain. The most common cause of neck pain and slip disc, which we see daily, would be strained neck muscles and, in particular, the levator scapulae muscle. It is located in the posterior aspect of our head and goes down to your scapula on either side. 

The Levator scapula is a vital muscle when it comes to movements of the neck and the shoulder. Innervated by the C3 and C4 nerves, the levator scapulae, you can easily strain muscle due to sleeping in an awkward position, traumatic falls, overuse of neck muscles, and bad posture. This is a crucial muscle that we often neglect and should take better care of.

Neck Pain And Slip Disc Is Treatable Without Injections & Surgery

Having neck pain is not good. But, neck pain and slip disc are even worse. SLip discs in the neck are more serious than those in the lower back. Slipped disc in the neck can cause numbness, tingling, pain, and weakness in the arms and even legs. It can even lead to paralysis or, worse, organ failures (when the cord is compressed severely). 

When there are radiating symptoms like numbness and tingling in the hands, the more likely cause would be a slipped cervical spinal disc causing nerve impingement. There is also a situation where one can have both a spinal disc disorder and a spinal joint disorder. The combined impact of the spinal disc and spinal joints will produce a higher degree of pain. Let’s briefly look at how a slip-disc causes pain.

The Spinal Disc: Common Source of Neck and Upper Back Pain

Spinal discs are between every segment, except between the first and second segments in the neck (C1-C2). The spinal disc allows for motion, connects spinal segments, and acts as a shock absorber. However, when the stress placed on the spinal disc exceeds its mechanical threshold, the discal integrity is compromised. In other words, spinal discs get damaged. A damaged spinal disc is a weak disc in which the fibers bulge, protrude, or prolapse through (slipped disc or slip-disc). When a disc’s fibers protrude or slip excessively, it compresses or irritates the nerve. If the slippage is severe enough, it may even compress the spinal cord.

Compression of spinal nerves or spinal cord can cause a wide variety of symptoms, including neck pain, upper back pain, burning sensation in the upper back, pain in the shoulders, arms, wrists. Additionally, it may cause numbness, tingling, and even weakness in the affected limbs. Severe compression of the cord can also lead to paralysis or worse. So, don’t neglect your neck pain.

Spinal Joints: Another Source of Neck and Upper Back Pain

Slipped disc and spinal joint malfunctions are the leading causes of neck and upper back pain. Now, let’s look at the spinal joint to understand how it becomes a source of neck pain or upper back pain. The joints in your neck are called facets. A joint issue in the neck is often referred to as a facet syndrome or cervical facet syndrome. Excessive stress or damaged joint tissues can lead to swelling of the spinal joints in your neck. A common cause of joint-related neck pain is the inflammatory process brought on by daily stresses. Once your neck joint is under stress, it will impact the muscles, ligaments, and other sensitive tissues surrounding the neck. Spinal joints, like another joint in the body, are encapsulated. In other words, they are tightly sealed and nicely lubricated. Continued daily stresses will cause a decrease in the inward flow of the amounts of fluids excessively. 

Impact of Inflammatory Processes (Excessive Fluid Buildup)

The thing to remember about fluids is that they are not compressible. In other words, 8 ounces of liquid will be 8 ounces, regardless of how much weight you place on it. And as such, excessive buildup of fluids can lead to tears of the joint lining. We hope to have provided you sufficient information about the neck and sources of neck pain. Our advice, seek care and attention as soon as neck pain is felt. We urge you to get your neck checked as soon as possible if you are experiencing any discomfort. There’s no use in delaying it.
