What is neck pain?

 

Neck pain and stiffness is common in people of all ages. 2 out of 3 of us will experience neck pain at some point.

 

Reasons for neck pain can include:

  • Poor sitting posture,

  • Static postures 

  • Stress

  • Unusual activity e.g painting ceiling.

Serious neck conditions are rare. Neck pain is usually as a result of stiff joints or tight muscles which do not require an investigation e.g X-ray / scan.

 

The good news is, making simple changes to your daily activities can have a big impact on your neck pain.
