Neck pain is a temporary condition that disappears when treated by a neck pain specialist. In chronic and severe neck pain conditions, referred neck pain occurs when the nerve root is being compressed enough to create arm pain, numbness, tingling or weakness.
Neck pain occurs when the muscles, fascia or joints become stiff, resulting in increased stress of the deep structures such as the discs and nerve roots. Referred pain occurs when the stiff neck compresses sensitive structures resulting in chronic neck pain, headaches or shoulder pain.
