Today's modern lifestyle often causes problems in the neck and shoulder area. Poor work position, repetitive tasks, stress and disuse of the full range of motion of the neck can all cause pain, discomfort and muscle tension in the neck, at the base of the skull and over the top of the shoulders. These problems can be associated with frequent headaches.
Accidents, injuries and poor posture can further increase the stress and strain in the neck area. The body has a remarkable capacity to compensate for stress and injuries. However, should you start to experience neck pain, speak to your chiropractor to find out how you can best get out of pain and stay that way.
