Neck Pain treatments in Tallahassee Fl. Does your neck or shoulders ache while at work? Many other people are in the same situation with an estimated 60% of americanswho suffer from some sort of neck or shoulder pain. Many people also feel tense and aching shoulders as well. Most of us think the neck or shoulder aches and pains will eventually go away especially with the right pillow, exercise or stretch. However, if the neck ache or pain has been persistent longer than a week, its time to check the spine alignment.
Some Causes of Neck Pain
Neck pain can be caused by a number of things, including: poor ergonomics at home or work, sleeping position (Stomach sleeping), whiplash caused by a car crash, sports injury, a slip and fall or even a blow to the head. If left untreated, minor neck injuries often worsen causing severe neck pain, making it hard to sleep or perform daily activities. Neck pain often triggers other conditions such as back pain or headaches as people often compensate to avoid the neck pain.
