How Neck Pain Occurs
Many factors can lead to neck pain. For example, if you look at a cell phone, laptop, or tablet for numerous hours a day, you can strain the muscles and joints in the neck. The consequence is often neck pain. People involved in car accidents can suffer from a neck injury called whiplash. Whiplash happens when the soft tissues of the neck are stretch beyond their normal range of motion due to an abrupt jerking movement of the head. Neck pain can also occur if you have poor posture, use improper ergonomic practices at work, have nerve compression in the neck, or sustained a sports injury.
- Limited mobility of the head
- Muscle spasms or tightness
- The pain gets worse after driving or using a computer for too long
- Neck stiffness
- General soreness in the neck
