Neck pain is a common problem that is usually caused by muscle imbalances and joint misalignment stemming from poor posture, especially with prolonged sitting. Neck pain can also lead to headaches or to radiating arm pain that can reach anywhere from your upper trapezius (next to your neck) all the way down to your fingertips. It is not unusual for neck issues to present as sharp or shooting arm pain or numbness and tingling in the arms or hands. The most common traumatic reason for neck pain is whiplash from motor vehicle accidents or hard falls.
