Neck pain has been one of the most common disabilities known to be suffered by people in everyday life. Almost in all the age groups (mostly in middle & old age) people complain about neck pain and their inability in carrying out their daily activities due to it. The pain is generally in the back of the neck and along the muscles in the sides between the neck and shoulders.
In many cases, neck pain is caused due to poor posture and faulty ergonomics in the people working for long hours and computer on a desk. These positions lead to overworking of muscles in the neck making them ache due to fatigue.
Degenerative changes in the joint and discs between the vertebrae causes pain and restrictions in the range of motion and is associated with other physical impairment.
Common Degenerative Disorders Are:
A sudden catch like sensation in the neck when the soft tissues (muscles & ligaments) in the neck extend beyond their typical range of motion due to trauma (Whiplash Injury) is also a common condition causing neck pain which can be mild in the beginning but may lead to a long term discomfort.
Other symptoms associated with neck pain can be headache, dizziness, stiffness in the neck, weakness in arms, fatigue.
Neck pain is a symptom of many conditions, as treatment of neck pain depends on what condition is been diagnosed and how are the other symptoms associated with it.

It helps to relax the muscles, which can significantly relieve pain and stiffness while increasing flexibility. It is also used to treat herniated discs and pinched nerves. It can relieve pain from joints, sprain and spasms. This improves mobility, range of motion and alignment of the spine.
Many superficial and deep heating modalities such as heat pads, shock wave diathermy, ultrasound, paraffin baths, whirpool baths etc. Are used to relieve and relax the muscles.
Electrical Stimulating currents such as TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical nerve Stimulation) and Interferential current are used for modulation of pain through stimulation of cutaneous sensory nerves and following pain gate mechanism.
One of common manual techniques used in to reduce spasm is to release trigger point in the neck reducing pain commonly known as myofascial release (MFR). It also helps in correcting alignment of the neck and improving the function.
Proper stretching and strengthening program is highly effective to relieve pain and increase efficiency of the neck and the muscles to carry out various daily activities without any distress. Stretching expands and preserves the range of motion & elasticity in affected cervical joints and relives stiffness that accompanies pain.
