Do you suffer from constant or annoying neck pain? If you do, you're not alone. An estimated seven out of ten people suffer from some sort of neck pain at some point in their life. It's very easy for anyone to have a neck injury and resulting neck pain. Things like, car accidents, slip and falls, sports injuries, and even stomach sleeping can cause injury to your neck. Your spine takes the brunt of all your activities. This means that if your spine is misaligned, it can easily affect surrounding ligaments, joints, and muscles, causing significant discomfort and pain in your neck and shoulders.
Some Causes of Neck Pain
Chronic, long term neck pain can be caused by a number of things, including: sleeping position (Stomach sleeping in particular), poor posture (text neck is neck pain from excessive staring at wireless devices), whiplash caused by a car accident or sports injury, or even a blow to the head. If left untreated, mild neck pains can easily cause severe neck pain, making it hard to sleep or perform daily activities. Many people have difficulty turning their head to one side which can easily affect how they drive their cars thus putting them in unnecessary danger.
