Neck pain can be very disruptive to our lives. Neck strains and sprains can be extremely uncomfortable and often accompanied with pain.
Neck discomfort may be caused by injury, poor posture, sleeping differently, stress, repetitive motions, holding your head in a position for long periods, a degenerative issue or even as a result of an infection. People seeking relief from neck pain is fast becoming more commonplace in today’s society. Poor posture is increasing due to modern day technology with the use of smartphones and tablets. We seem to be always looking down at our phones, which cause structural problems with our neck and spine, leading to pain and discomfort.
