Reasons for neck pain
Neck pain can be caused by a lot of reasons. In this hurry up society neck pain is increasingly common because of the amount of time we spend staring down at our laptops and smartphones. This looking down day after day causes the posterior neck muscles and upper thoracic muscles to have to overwork to keep our head somewhat up against gravity. This causes the neck to become misaligned and it can feel stiff as it no longer can move freely. This generally is the start of neck pain
On top of that sleeping with your neck in an awkward posture either due to a poor fitting or old pillow or just sleeping “wrong” will cause even more stress to the neck contributing to the pain getting worse and worse.
Finally, you can have an incident which causes trauma to the neck like an auto accident, fall, or sporting injury. These can trigger long term neck pain lasting for months or years.
