Neck pain is a common complaint. Desk work, stress, tension, poor posture, over-exertion and motor accidents can all result in a stiff and irritable neck.
what causes neck pain?
Most commonly due to muscular tension, neck pain can become debilitating and the sensitivity can leave you flinching at the thought of hugging, dancing or wearing a halter neck dress. Long term neck tension can result in stiffness and joint restriction in the neck and this can lead to headaches into various areas of the skull.
