What Causes Neck Pain?

It can come from things like..

  • Sleeping in an awkward position
  • Prolonged use of a computer
  • From bad posture
  • Stress
  • Whiplash
  • Pinched Nerve

Perhaps you are doing all of those things. If you have bad pain in your neck and it’s only been about a week, try sleeping differently, use a better pillow, make sure you have good posture while using a computer and stand up straight when walking. Stress and anxiety can also cause bad neck pain by causing tension, which tightens the muscles.

If the pain doesn’t improve after home remedies, you may want to see a doctor.  If painkillers aren’t enough to make it subside you may also want to see a doctor.
