If you notice your neck hurting by the end of the day or if you wake up with stiffness, there might be an underlying issue that needs to be addressed. Neck pain is an incredibly common occurrence and there are endless reasons as to why you are experiencing pain.
Some of the most common causes of neck pain:
- Accidents and/or Injury: A sudden forced movement of your neck or head can result in whiplash. The “whipping” motion that occurs injures the supporting tissues of the head and neck and can lead to serious issues if not assessed by a medical professional.
- Daily Life: If you suffer with weak abdominal muscles or poor posture, you might be experiencing neck pain. Stress and tension can cause the muscles of the neck and head to contract and tighten, resulting in pain and stiffness.
- Disorders: Degenerative disorders can directly affect the spine. Degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and osteoarthritis are a few of the most common.
