5 Common Neck Injuries

Our necks are complex structures vulnerable to injury because of their awesome, dynamic mobility and length. They contain muscles, tendons, ligaments, vertebrae and nerves that contribute to our movements and can be injured with the wrong move or a sudden accident.

Below are the five most common types of neck injuries:

1. Neck Sprains and Strains

Sprains and strains are damages and tears to your neck's soft tissues, including muscles, ligaments and tendons. These injuries often result from hyperextension due to sudden movements from impact, like sports activities or car accidents. Whiplash is a common term for these injuries.

2. Stiff Muscles and Tendons

These are usually minor injuries caused by holding your neck in an awkward position for too long. They can result from things like sleeping in a weird position, using the wrong pillow or holding a poor posture while working.

3. Herniated Disks

Your neck has seven cervical vertebrae, each with a soft disk that cushions the bones and absorbs impacts as you go about your routines. When one of these disks becomes damaged, the soft, jelly-like interior can leak out or bulge, causing significant pain and pressure on nearby nerves.

Herniated disks often occur from usual wear and tear or sudden injuries like falls. You can also cause a herniated disk when you lift something especially heavy without support.

4. Pinched Nerves

Your nerves travel throughout your body through your spine, but when bones, tissues or tendons push up against the nerves in your neck, you may feel pain in your neck, shoulders, back, arms or hands. Nerve pinches can result from any other injuries listed on this page, including herniated disks, arthritis or sprains and strains.

5. Osteoarthritis and Degenerative Disks

Neck injuries like osteoarthritis and degenerative disks can occur naturally as we age. Our cervical disks and vertebral cartilage wear down over time, narrowing the spaces in the spinal column and compressing our spinal nerve roots. These injuries result in bone spurs and pinched nerves, which can cause pain.
