Neck pain is a common pain complaint, especially in older adults. The neck pain can be from a strain or injury. Cervical disc issues may be the cause of the neck pain. Neck pain can sometimes be felt into the arms, upper back, or back of the head, including headaches. Some people may feel numbness or tingling in their arms. Long lasting neck pain may need to be evaluated with testing that includes x-rays, EMGs, or MRI. The neck pain may be treated with physical therapy, injections, nerve blocks, or surgery.
