Acute Neck Pain
Acute neck pain is pain due to inflammation and/or injury to the tissues of the neck. It typically comes on suddenly with an identifiable cause such as sleeping with the neck in an awkward position, sustained poor posture or an impact injury (sports injury, whiplash). Acute neck pain heals with time, usually within a few days or a few weeks. Physical therapy can help decrease pain and inflammation while your injury is healing and assist with the healing process.
Acute neck pain is typically a sharp and excruciating pain that is localized, but it may also radiate across the top of your shoulder and down into your arm or into your upper back and shoulder blade. Pain may be worse with turning your head or looking up or down.
