Acute Neck Pain

What is Acute Neck Pain:

Acute neck pain means immediate neck pain. Neck pain that just started. This type of pain comes on suddenly and it affects the ability to properly move your head in its proper range of motion.

One serious type of acute neck pain is whiplash- the sudden jarring motion of your head going backwards and forward. This often occurs with a rear end collision. Acute neck pain can also be the result of a fall, sleeping awkwardly, a trauma or even a fall. Often times when someone has just strained or irritated their neck in some way the pain is most severe. There usually is inflammation, immobility, and muscle tenderness. Often with acute neck pain, the muscles or ligaments are involved.

When the muscle can start to relax and the inflammation decreases the pain does as well. To help one get through the acute phase of neck pain the best helpers are often simply only using ice and resting (being careful not to do things that cause more pain).

Usually the acute phase of neck pain lasts for about 24hours. It is after this period lasts for about 24 hours. It is after this period that one can more easily start with a routine of specific stretches, exercises, and muscle work to get rid of the pain.

If this pain is not taken care of properly it can turn into a a chronic condition.

Get rid of your pain now…before its too late.

What to Do In the Acute Stage of Neck Pain ?

A tens unit can help with muscle spasm, neck pain and neck Stiffness
In the beginning stages of neck pain after an injury the body reacts to an injury by restricting blood flow to that area to prevent blood loss. Very quickly, the body than starts to increase blood flow to initiate the healing process. After an acute injury, such as whiplash or a trauma- applying the RICE method of treatment is beneficial to begin the healing process:
  • Rest- this gives the opportunity for the body to heal without increasing the injury
  • Ice- this helps to decrease inflammation, increase blood flow to the area and provides an analgesic effect.
  • Compression- this helps to control and reduce swelling, a natural occurence with the inflammatory response.
  • Elevation- this also helps to control and reduce swelling


After an acute neck injury cold therapy should be applied to the neck to reduce inflammation, swelling and decrease the pain. For the neck, you should use a 6x20 ice pack. It is important to wrap your cervical ice pack in a towel before placing it against your neck. To cover the neck and upper back area use a 9x16 ice pack that has two flaps for the upper shoulder area. Great for muscles spasms of the upper trapezius muscle.

Another great tool for helping acute neck pain is a Tens Electrotherapy Unit. This can help with muscle tension, stiffness in the neck and upper back area. The electrical currents produced by the TENS unit are mild and can prevent pain messages from being transmitted to the brain and may raise the level of endorphins (natural pain killers produced by the brain). Finally, using a natural pain relief gel such as Biofreeze can also provide an analgesic effect. If you are going to use a cervical neck collar, do so only temporarily to limit your head and neck motion.
