Chronic Neck Pain
Disorders of the neck leave somebody unable to perform their duties or even earn a living. The debilitating nature of neck pain can be traced from numerous underlying reasons. If the neck pain symptoms go over than 12 weeks, then it becomes chronic. Although this condition is anatomical or physical, it thus affects other aspects, such as psychological or social. The prolonged pain affects a person’s ability to lead a normal, day-to-day life.
Most common cause of neck pain can be attributed to prolonged sitting in front of the computer or TV, as the muscles get stiff. Poor posture and improper sleeping habits can also cause neck pain and stiff neck. The pain arising from these instances may spread to the shoulders, arms, and head.
Though neck pain may appear a simple pain in the neck may become persistent if not corrected immediately. Chronic neck pain can last longer than you expect, where over-the-counter medications are not the solution to eradicate the pain.
