Many of the diseases can cause severe neck pain in older patients. 10% of people will have neck pain in a life time. The most common causes are axial pain, whiplash-associated disorder, and cervical radiculopathy. Most cases without trauma, motor and/or sensory changes, and radiological abnormalities were diagnosed as axial pain. To date, crowned dens syndrome (CDS) and acute calcific retropharyngeal tendinitis (ACRT) have been almost considered as the main causes of acute neck pain in the elderly without trauma.
