Neck pain is a common injury in our clinic. Your neck is flexible and supports the weight of your head. The muscle around the neck would give an extra stability to the neck and sometimes they overworked due to compensated movements and cause pain and restrict motion. Neck muscles can be strained from poor posture, whether it’s leaning over your computer or hunching over your workbench. Rarely, neck pain can be a symptom of a more serious problem.
We have many patients who suffer from Muscle strains. Overuse, such as too many hours hunched over your computer or smartphone, often triggers muscle strains. Even minor things, such as reading in bed or gritting your teeth, can strain neck muscles. In many cases, your breathing pattern could cause overactivation and spasm in your neck muscles.
