Why Do We Get A Stiff Neck?

A stiff neck is commonly caused by a neck muscle strain or soft tissue sprain. It is described
as a soreness and in difficulty moving the neck. Sometimes, a stiff neck can be accompanied
by headache, shoulder pain, neck pain and/or arm pain. Some of the most common activities
that can cause stiff necks includes sleeping with the neck in an awkward position. Sport injuries
are also common causes for athletes. A bad fall or sudden impact that forcefully pushes the head
to the side is a popular cause among adults. Additionally, turning the head side to side repeatedly
during an activity such as swimming as well as slouching with poor posture for prolonged periods
can lead to neck tension. Moreover, studies are now acknowledging excessive stress or anxiety
as cause for a variety of physical discomforts. When you cradle your phone at one side of the
head and putting the neck in an abnormal position for a long period of time can also cause stiff neck.
Furthermore, underlying disorder of the cervical spine such as cervical herniated disc, cervical
degenerative disc disease and cervical osteoarthritis are also contributing factors.
