Suffering from neck pain?
The neck is a complex area and one of the most common areas of complaint things we see in the clinic. The 7 cervical vertebrae (bones of the spine) are stacked on top of each other with discs in between them and are bound by ligaments for passive stability. The nerves that go to your shoulders, arms, and hands come all the way from your neck. Your neck muscles move your head and neck. They also maintain your posture by supporting the weight of your head which weighs, on average, 4-5 kilograms! Not only this, the neck is also a very mobile part of the body. It is no wonder that neck problems are so common.
What causes neck pain?
Neck discomfort is often caused by excessive muscular and tendon tension in the cervical region. Misalignment of the neck can lead to head tilting to one side or forwards, and is frequently associated with neck pain. This condition is commonly referred to as “text neck” and is caused by spending too much time looking down at your phone, tablet, or other electronic devices. When you’re looking down, you’re bending your neck forward and putting a lot of stress on the muscles and ligaments in your neck. This can lead to pain, stiffness, and headaches.
