Neck Pain

Does your neck ache as you look at the screen to read this? Do you regularly feel as though there are knots in the muscles of your neck and shoulders? You are not alone! Approximately two thirds of the adult population will have neck pain at some point in their lives (1) and at any one time about a quarter of the adult population are experiencing neck pain, a figure that is rising with the increased use smart phones, tablets and computers in our day to day lives (1).

"At any one time about a quarter of the adult population are experiencing neck pain."

The neck is a delicate and complex structure. It is the most mobile area of the spine and houses a number of critical pathways, both neurological and functional. Due to the increased mobility of the neck it is also at an increased risk to damage and pain.

It is increasingly more common for people to have desk jobs which lead to individuals spending the majority of their time on their backsides where bad sitting habits are common place leading to a poor slumped sitting posture and craning of the neck forward to stare at the computer.

Your head weighs about the same as a small watermelon. For every inch it moves forward the force on your body doubles, causing the muscles and joints of the neck to work harder under increased strain. Other causes of neck pain include traumas such as whiplash or sporting injuries and arthritis.
