Picture balancing a 12 lb. (5.5 kg.) bowling ball atop your fingertips throughout the day—just one of the tasks your neck undertakes continuously. The intricate relationships among the seven bones in your cervical spine (neck) mean that even minor deviations can trigger pain and limit head and neck mobility significantly.
Minor and Major
Neck and shoulder discomfort usually fall into two categories. Minor cases involve sensations of stiffness, soreness, or discomfort. When these symptoms persist for days, occur frequently, or follow an accident or injury, they are considered major.
Response to Stress
Physical, emotional, or chemical stress can intensify neck pain frequency and severity. Often, the neck and shoulders bear the brunt of stress, becoming the “weakest link in the chain.”
Emotional stress often goes unnoticed but can be a significant contributor. The phrase “a pain in the neck” isn’t just metaphorical—fear, anger, or frustration can unconsciously trigger neck muscle tension, leading to chronic spasms and subsequent headaches.
While over-the-counter pain relievers may temporarily dull the pain, they don’t address the root cause.
