    Osteoporosis is not necessarily symptomatic. So while it is possible, it's not really likely.

    As noted above, osteoporosis is generally not symptomatic. In order to find out more about the cause of your neck pain, it would be a good idea to contact a chiropractor who will assess the muscles, spine, joints and other structures in order to determine the specific problem. They will also ask questions to find out more about the timing and type of pain you experience.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
    -Dr. A

    I agree with Jane and Aaron.

    The neck is a complex arrangement on joints, nerves, muscles and connective tissue. Pain is an indication that there is potential or actual tissue damage. It is no normal to have constant pain in a healthy neck.

    I would recommend you see your primary health care provider to look further into this.

    Osteoporosis itself does not cause pain. Neck pain is extremely common and is usually related to muscle &/or ligament strain due to prolonged static postures. Joint stiffness can limit movement and make turning the head painful. It usually responds well to mobilisation, massage and postural correction exercises.
