There are many potential neck pain causes. In addition to certain medical conditions that are associated with neck pain, neck pain can also be caused by injuries from accidents. For example, people involved in vehicle collisions often experience neck pain. Specifically, rear-end collisions can often cause whiplash, forcing the head to jerk backward then forward.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms


To know whether rheumatoid arthritis may be the cause of you or your loved one's neck pain, it's essential to know the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Common rheumatoid arthritis symptoms include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Joint swelling,
  • Joint tenderness,
  • Joint stiffness that worsens in the morning and after being inactive,
  • Fatigue that's accompanied by a fever and weight loss


Because rheumatoid arthritis affects the joints, types of pain other than neck pain may also be a symptom of rheumatoid arthritis.

Rheumatoid Arthritis Treatment


Rheumatoid arthritis treatments can relieve neck pain and other symptoms. There are multiple types of rheumatoid arthritis treatments. Because of this, there is no one-size-fits-all treatment for rheumatoid arthritis.

Common rheumatoid arthritis treatments include, but are not necessarily limited to:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications,
  • Medications that are made to slow the progression of rheumatoid arthritis, known as Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs),
  • Physical therapy,
  • Joint replacement,
  • Surgery to reduce pain and fix deformities


An SOS neck pain specialist will create an individualized treatment plan that's best for you or your loved one's personal health. While SOS focuses first on conservative rheumatoid arthritis treatments, some patients may need surgery to get the symptom relief they need.
