About Neck Pain...
As more and more people spend their working day at a computer or sat in an office, the neck and shoulder muscles can become stiff or overused.
Other factors such as stress and tiredness can contribute to ongoing neck pain as can osteoarthritis (age-related wear and tear) in the neck. This can, in turn, cause not only muscular pain from the neck into the shoulder but also some stiffness in moving the neck.
An irritated or ‘trapped’ nerve in your neck can cause some arm pain going down into the hand and may be accompanied by pins and needles and numbness.
