What causes neck pain?
Neck pain is often caused by poor posture or working too long without taking a break. It might also be caused by a bad sleeping position or from a quick jerking motion as with whiplash from an auto accident. The neck is very vulnerable to injury from a fall or car accident. Neck pain might also be caused by arthritis, osteoporosis or a narrowing of the spinal column known as spinal stenosis.
