Neck pain is a common complaint. Many people experience pain or stiffness in the neck or shoulders occasionally.
Your neck is flexible. The bones, ligaments and muscles support the weight of your head, allowing for movement. The discs in the neck absorb the shock between the bones. It can therefore be vulnerable to injury and conditions that cause pain and restrict motion.
Most neck pain is caused by poor posture (leaning over your desk at work) or overuse (muscle strains). Sometimes neck pain can be caused by a pinched nerve, awkward sleeping or an injury, (sports or whiplash). Certain diseases like osteoarthritis can also cause neck pain.
Common symptoms of neck pain include
Pain holding the head in one place
Muscle tightness and spasm
Most causes of neck pain are easily treatable.
