Got a pain in the neck? Any part of your neck – muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments or nerves – can cause it. Pain may also come from your shoulder, jaw, head or upper arms.
Muscle strain or tension often causes neck pain. The problem is usually overuse, such as from sitting at a computer for too long.
Sometimes you can strain your neck muscles from sleeping in an awkward position or overdoing it during exercise. Falls or accidents, including car accidents, are another common cause of neck pain.
