Where Does Neck Pain Come From

The primary tissues that cause neck pain are the disc and posterior joint, known as facets. Mobility or stability losses in other locations can also create symptoms in the neck. The main culprits driving neck symptoms are poor shoulder mobility and/or stability, the midback, and the temporomandibular joint. Just like the lower back, which can be the culprit behind sciatic symptoms, arm pain, weakness, and numbness can be driven by the cervical disc.
