What are the causes of neck pain?

Causes of Neck Pain

Neck pain came derive from many causes, all of which can cause damage in different ways, these are as follows:

  • ​Poor posture
  • Injury or strain during exercise
  • Sleeping with your neck in a bad position
  • Spending long periods of time in the same position (working at a desk for example)
  • Arthritis
  • Stress


​This might be uncomfortable but should not cause any stinging pain. If it does, stop immediately.

How to Treat Neck Pain

You can use quick fixes like stretches, painkillers and cold or hot compresses but the only thing that will make a permanent difference is a lifestyle change. If your neck is strained from sitting at a desk all day, try getting up and moving around every 20 minutes to keep your neck and shoulders mobile. Try sleeping on your back with a pillow underneath your thighs as this helps relax your spine and relieves pressure on your neck.
