Everyone gets neck pain from time to time. You may have slept funny or sat at the computer for too long. Maybe it’s painful for a day or two and then it goes away. But there are other types of neck pain that do require attention.
Injuries like whiplash from a car accident leave patients in agony for years. A pinched nerve from a sporting accident can set sparks of pain so excruciating you’re unable to sleep at night.
Other patients experience neck soreness when they’re stressed or going through an emotional time.
There are many reasons why you may be experiencing neck back pain:
Cervical spine trauma
Poor sleeping position
Working at a desk for too long
