Neck Pain and Stiffness

Neck pain can be traumatic following a motor vehicle accident or can be a progressive condition. It is often associated with poor posture, scoliosis, poor work station, or sustained carrying/ lifting.

Neck pain is a common complaint for people who sit for prolonged periods of time. This includes but not limitted to office workers, students, and drivers.

The pressure on the neck increases with the forward bending position, the poke neck position, and whether there is loading from the shoulder and arm.

Neck pain can come on over night or while doing a fairly ordinary task.
