Overview of Neck Pain
Neck Pain is an incredibly common condition that we see and treat in our clinic on a near daily basis. There are a lot of things that can cause neck pain but most of them boil down to injury or aggravation of muscles, joints or connective tissue (such as ligaments or tendons). When joints, muscles or connective tissue become inflamed they stiffen and restrict movement. This is the body trying to hold things in place so the tissues can heal and is a normal and natural reaction. If this reaction persists however, it could be a sign that the body is compensating for an injury or condition that requires further treatment.
