Neck pain is commonly referred to as discomfort in any of the structures in the neck. These include muscles and nerves as well as spinal vertebrae and the cushioning discs between them. A common cause of neck pain is muscle strain or tension which is usually caused by such activities as: bending forward for hours, having poor posture, Forward Head Posture (F.H.P.) while watching TV or reading, placing a computer monitor too high or too low, sleeping in an uncomfortable position, or twisting and turning the neck in a jarring manner while exercising.
Improper sleeping positions often cause neck pain. Many people use pillows that are either too soft or too hard that do not support the head during sleep causing neck pain and stiffness. Contoured and theraputic pillows help alleviate neck pain. There are also specific “side sleeper” pillows that provide support and reduce neck pain.
