Cervical pain (more commonly known as neck pain) is one of the many common pains experienced by most people. What causes neck pain can be traced from varying conditions. Poor posture is the most obvious cause of neck pain. Stiff neck, for example, is worsened by moving the head awkwardly. On some occasions, neck muscles may become stiff due to poor sitting. If you spend more time sitting and working on the computer, this will put stress on the neck and back. While the neck aches, it can affect the shoulders, arms, and head and may limit you from doing your daily tasks.
Simple neck pains can be corrected right away. With the right treatment, the pain may leave you in a few days. However, persistent pain in the neck or chronic neck pain can last for months. Chronic neck pain is not to be ignored. It is always advisable to seek medical help to combat the pain.
