Common Causes of Neck Pain

Disc herniation, stenosis, spondylosis, degenerative disc disease, cervical fracture, and bone spurs are common causes of neck pain.

Dr. Ronald Tolchin, Medical Director of the Baptist Health Center for Spine Care, says stenosis happens as people get older and it is usually a result of arthritis. He explains spondylosis is arthritis, and it could affect small joints in the back of the neck, discs, or the entire spine, and it could turn into degenerative disc disease.
