These types of pain may range from days to years and come and go. Usually, it is a spinal or paraspinal issue. It is especially sensitive and shows great improvement with physical therapy and postural correction exercise regimes.

1) Neck pain

Minor neck pain is commonly caused by something you did such as keeping your head in an awkward position for too long, resulting in ‘locking’ the joint and the neck muscles eventually becoming painfully fatigued.

If the muscles that support your head and neck are not kept flexible and strong, poor and prolonged postures can put too much stress on the head and neck muscles and joints. This can lead to strains of the muscles and sprains of the ligaments that support your head and neck.

Neck pain that persists for many days or keeps coming back may be a sign that something is wrong. Disease, an injury (such as whiplash in an auto accident), a congenital malformation, or age-related changes may be responsible for more significant pain.

As we age, our joints wear out (osteoarthritis), and the discs in the spine dry up and flatten (degenerative disc disease). You may experience pain that radiates into the top of the shoulders or in between your shoulder blades. Occasionally, a pinched nerve (radiculopathy) occurs, and you may feel tingling, pain, and/or numbness radiating into the arm, forearm, hand, and fingers.
