Neck Pain, a common complaint
Neck Pain is a common complaint among our patients due to the amount of sitting and screen time people are completing at work, school or home. Neck pain can also be linked to a “poke neck” and rounded shoulder posture which may result in tightness of the neck muscles and an increased load on the cervical spine.
