What types of activities can cause neck pain?

Neck pain has a way of slowing you down. Even worse, if left untreated, it can be debilitating to the point where you are unable to get out of bed in the morning.

It's important that you understand the many types of activities that can cause neck pain, as this will go a long way in helping you avoid an injury.

As a worker whose job is physically demanding, you need to be particularly careful in regard to the health of your neck and back.

Here are some of the many types of activities that can cause neck pain:

  • Holding your head in the same position for a long period of time, such as when working at a computer station all day long
  • Lifting items that are too heavy and/or using improper lifting techniques
  • A slip and fall incident, such as one in which you twist your neck and/or land on this part of your body
  • Any activity that requires you to repeatedly stretch your body and arms, such as overhead work

If you suffer any type of neck injury, you don't want to wait a single minute to receive a diagnosis from a medical professional.

Once you know what type of injury you're facing, as well as the treatment that it requires, you can determine if you're able to return to work in the near future.

If you suffered your injury on the job and are unable to return to work as you recover, you should learn more about filing a claim for workers' compensation benefits. The money you receive will allow you to remain in control of your financial situation while you recover.
