Cervical Strain

Causes
Cervical strains are quite common and both moderate and severe in nature. They can occur due to any number traumatic events or injuries to the upper spine, including:
  • Car Accident
  • Slip-and-Fall
  • Sports Injury

As well as any other collision or trauma to the neck area. When any injury or trauma to the neck occurs, the muscles and tendons (tendons are connective tissue that link our muscles to the bone) can be stretched out drastically. And in many cases, they can become hyperextended or even torn. When any issue arises within the cervical spine or neck, it is important to undergo an MRI as well as an X-ray, to help us better understand what has actually occurred to cause pain or discomfort.
