Pain and stiffness in the neck, numbness/tingling, or even weakness down the arms are common symptoms you may experience with a cervical spine dysfunction. Neck pain could be caused by a direct trauma to the neck, aging, or a postural related issue. For example, most of us spend a majority of the day sitting at a desk typing. Our posture worsens when we are seated for prolonged periods of time or when we become fatigued. Therefore, it is important to seek an evaluation by a physical therapist to determine possible causes of the pain, to receive treatment and exercises to diminish the symptoms, and to learn about ergonomic factors that may need to be altered to prevent further impairments.
