The cervical pain  is nothing more than pain in the neck, which is either localized or radiates to the back and / or hands. The neck pain describes  a symptom in a particular area and it neither constitutes  a specific diagnosis, norit is associated with the  specific cause. The pain may appear suddenly after a sudden movement or a car accident, or slowly established and remaining for weeks or months.
The pain is a very common symptom. The neck pain affects 10% of the population each year. Usually caused by poor posture, eg someone who works in front of a computer, or drive for long hours. Although the pain may be severe, in the vast majority of cases resolves within 8-12 weeks.
In approximately 90% of cases, the pain is attributed to mechanical damage or disorders often associated with gradual changes of the cervical spine due to aging and / or excessive use of neck and shoulder.

The most common conditions that cause neck pain are:
Muscular spasm
Intervertbral disc disease
Inflammation in the area of the neck
