NECK

NECK

How the neck works Necks are complex networks of muscles, tendons and ligaments supporting your head and extending down your shoulders and back. The upper portion of your spine - including the many small bones called vertebrae - are also part of your neck.

Common Issues

Neck pain often manifests as a "kink" or "crick" in your neck. This issue might cause pain in your neck itself, or cause your shoulders, upper back or arms to feel stiff. Another result of neck pain are headaches and a limitation of neck and head movement. Stress and tension can also trigger headaches or common symptoms like a dull pain at the back of your neck.

Usual Causes

Minor Neck Pain can often occur because of a sudden twisting of the neck or by maintaining a specific position for an extended period. It can also be the result of poor posture when sleeping, or built-up tension and stress.

Prevention and Treatment

Neck pain can be a real distraction, making it hard to do what we love. Check out a few tips for using smartphones and computers without sacrificing your back. Learn how important break-times are for healthy spines.
