One of the most common reason why we experience sore neck is due to extended hours in front of digital screens such as computers, laptops and mobile devices, especially if the way you position yourself is adding stress to your muscles and joints. As the usage of mobile devices is increasing, the number of people suffering from neck pain or associated systems are also on the rise. Pain is a way our body is telling us that we are doing something harmful to the body and it is time to fix it. In this article, we will have a look at what are the common causes of sore neck and the solution.
What is causing neck pain?
The neck muscles. If the pain is mainly felt around the neck and upper shoulder area, most likely the source of discomfort lies in the muscles around the neck.
The joint’s alignment. Some of you may also experience an ache over shoulder blade region or even a headache related to certain neck positions or movements. In this case, your joint’s alignment is probably not normal, which will modify your spinal movement pattern.
The spinal nerves in the neck. In more severe cases, you may even experience numbness, pins and needles, or even weakness of your hand and/or along your arms. Most likely, the nerves which come out from your spinal cord in the neck are compressed, that will usually cause this type of pain or symptoms you’re feeling.
