Neck pain can occur from anywhere in your head to the top of your shoulders. It is common for people to report tight muscles or knots in the head and face as well as the base of the neck into the shoulders. Sometimes the pain radiates down to the arms or into the mid-back.
Tension headaches are common in patients who complain of neck and shoulder pain as well as decreased range of motion of the neck. Neck and shoulder pain is often caused by strain such as long hours reading , working at a computer, working overhead painting or construction, whiplash type injuries, slouching and poor posture or “sleeping wrong”.
