Your neck and shoulders work very hard all day. Even the smallest deviation in the relationships of the seven bones of your neck can cause neck pain and reduced head and neck mobility.
Your neck happens to be one of the most nerve-rich areas of your spine. Problems here can cause problems throughout your entire body.
Minor and Major Neck Issues
Generally, we see two different types of neck pain patients. Minor neck and shoulder pain involves feelings of discomfort, stiffness or soreness. If these symptoms last for more than a day, occur frequently or were preceded by an car accident or some type of injury, we consider it major.
Neck Pain & Stress
Physical, emotional and chemical stress can all affect the frequency and severity of your neck pain. For a lot of us, the neck and shoulders are the weakest link in the chain, so to speak, so stress shows up here the most.
Often, emotional stress is a big overlooked culprit. Ever hear of something being a real pain in the neck? Fear, anger or frustration can trigger the tightening of our neck muscles without our even being aware of it. In time, chronic muscle spasms can set in which can lead to headaches.
Over-the-counter pain relievers might dull the neck pain, but it ignores the underlying cause of your problem!
