WHAT IS A NECK AND SHOULDERS PAIN?
Pain in the neck and shoulder girdle is a temptation that many can face several times a month. Why does it occur? The cervical spine consists of seven vertebrae which, together with ligaments and muscles, serve as support and assistance in moving the head. If these muscles are not active enough, they become weaker. The consequence is insufficient support and the appearance of pain. Neck and shoulder pain can also occur due to improper loading of the neck muscles during daily activities.
WHY NECK AND SHOULDERS PAIN OCCURS?
The most common causes of pain are changes in the structure of the cervical spine and neck that can occur due to incorrect body position, the tension of the soft structures on the neck, sports, and workload or physical activity and stress, anxiety, and depression. When pain occurs, the cause of its occurrence should be discovered first, and only then can the doctor determine the appropriate treatment. As a therapy, they will often recommend massage and physical therapy, therapeutic exercises to increase muscle stabilization and strength, and at the same time the use of painkillers or analgesic creams.
