Did you know that your neck, also known as the cervical spine, supports the full weight of your head? That is roughly 10-12 pounds for the average adult! The neck is also a very flexible part of your body, therefore it is prone to injuries and pain. Neck pain is very common, particularly among those of us who do a lot of repetitive movement, spend extended periods of time sitting, work at a computer, or spend time looking at our smartphones. Neck pain can be caused by an injury or accident, growing older, or just daily life.
