A human neck is made up of vertebrae that extend from the skull to the upper torso. Cervical discs absorb shock between the bones. However, the bones, ligaments, and neck muscles help to support the head as well as allow for motion. Any abnormalities, inflammation, or injury can cause neck stiffness or pain.
Most people experience such discomfort occasionally. In many cases, it is due to poor body posture or overuse. Sometimes, the neck stiffness or pain is caused by an injury, accident, or Whiplash.
Most of the time, neck pain is not a severe condition and can be cured within a few days. But in some instances, it can indicate some serious injury or illness and requires a professional’s care.
If you have been experiencing pain in the neck for more than a week, consult Dr. GS Natt today.
