Why Neck Pain Occurs

Our necks are built to be flexible enough so we can look around easily. The problem with increasing flexibility is that you lose stability and increase the chance of injury. Working at a desk, using smartphones, minor car accidents and stress all have an impact on your neck’s ability to do its job.

Common Causes of Neck Pain

Long term neck injuries are most commonly at the C5-6 level and effect the disc. The reason for this has to do with important postural muscles called your Deep Neck Flexors which protect your joints and give you good posture. It’s only a little muscle and is prone to weakening over time, especially after whiplash. Once the weakness kicks in, you compensate by tightening up your upper traps (top of your shoulders). Too much tension in the traps causes compression of your discs and joints leading to wear and tear = Osteoarthritis.
