What Is Neck Pain?
Neck pain, or cervical pain, is a prevalent issue that can vary from a mild ache to severe, incapacitating pain, often accompanied by stiffness or difficulty moving the head. Common causes include poor posture, overuse, and strain, as well as more serious conditions such as osteoarthritis, disc disorders, or injuries like whiplash.
