Neck Pain in Oakleigh, Melbourne: Diagnosing Your Symptoms

You may be enduring neck pain and wondering whether or not all neck pain is the same. It’s not.

Neck pain can be experienced with a long list of other problems. The collection of symptoms provides an idea as to why you have neck pain. Here are some of the other symptoms that accompany neck pain:

  • Headache – This may occur because the meningeal lining of the brain has been irritated or because of trigger points within the muscles that refer pain in the head. Pinched nerves in the cervical spine can also cause cervicogenic headache.
  • Stiffness – Stiffness shows that the muscles are trying to prevent movement so that no additional damage will take place to the underlying structures of the neck.
  • Poor  range of motion – The inability to rotate your head to the left or right or to your shoulder is one of the causes of neck pain. This symptom suggests that there is scar tissue or misaligned vertebrae in your neck.
  • Eye pain or vision problems – This symptom suggests that injury to your neck is more than just a strained muscle or a sprain.
  • Fatigue – Low energy is another symptom that can indicate more serious health problems if it's combined with neck pain.
