1 out of 10 people experiences neck pain at some point in their life. In most cases, neck pain isn’t symptomatic an underlying health problem. While the exact cause has yet to be determined, experts believe that most cases of neck discomforts usually result from either minor sprains or bad posture.
Between sitting in front of a computer for an extended period of time and watching prolonged
television for relaxation, activities that could potentially cause neck discomforts are growing more and more ingrained in our everyday routine. Despite being no serious threat to general health, the problem with neck pain is that it often triggers other physical discomforts such as headache, shoulder pain, temporomandibular joint disorder, upper back pain, and carpal tunnel syndrome.
