Generally, neck pain is diagnosed by a medical history and physical examination.

Through the physical exam, your physio can check your neck motion range and can know whether your pain is caused by improper movements. He will also look for tenderness areas and any nerve-connected changes, such as numbness, tingling, or weakness in the arm or hand.
In most cases, blood tests are only be done for an illness or infection.
However, if after the above examinations, there are no signs of your medical history or recent injury, or adversely, after a period of treatment, your neck pain has not got any improvements, your doctors may suggest you have some imaging tests, such as X-rays.
