“This Is Why You Are Suffering From Pain!” RELIEF FOR NECK PAIN & HEADACHES

The neck is very complicated in its structure requiring good movement, posture, and support. Most of the rotating of your head comes from the upper part of the neck. Therefore, this is a very important part of your body. It is where the thickest part of the spinal cord goes through the spinal canal to the brain. It is also an important area that determines how your body balances. Main Causes of Neck Pain Neck pain can start for a number of reasons such as poor posture with sitting,caraccidents,stress, injuries,orevenfalls.Since theneck iswhere blood vessels travel through to supply your head, muscle tightness can cause spasms of the arteries around the nerves of the neck and head. This can cause headaches or even trigger migraines. People with neck problems often experience pain, tingling, or numbness, into the arms, hands, and even fingers. This happens, because the nerves exiting the spine in yourneck, supply sensations toyourarms andhands. If you find

these types of symptoms occurring, it is important that you see one of our expert physical therapists at Worcester Physical Therapy Services. There isa lot thatyoucando tohelpyourneckpain.Thekey ispreventing the neck pain from starting in the first place. However, our daily lives don’t always dictate what is good for our neck and shoulders. In today’s society we sit a lot in slouched positions which is not good for the neck, upper back, and shoulders. Our jobs, driving in the car, picking up heavy objects, and repetitive straining can hurt the neck over a period of time.
