Conditions / Neck Pain
No one wants to wake up with pain and discomfort from a "crick in the neck.” The first thing you may notice is your inability to move your head. This causes you to feel robotic as you rely solely on your upper body to maneuver your head. But what exactly is a crick in the neck anyway?
Cervical spondylosis refers to the degenerative process of the vertebral disks in the neck (arthritis). Like the rest of the body, the bones in the neck slowly degenerate as we age, which frequently results in arthritis. If you have noticed persistent cervical pain, it may be worth it to find out what it means.
It's true that some causes of neck pain, such as age-related wear and tear, are not under your control. On the other hand, there are many things you can do to minimize your risk to prevent further injury. One place to start is to look at how you sleep and what effects this may have on your neck pain.
