A stiff neck can put a big damper on a perfect day! Maybe you wake up with it first thing in the morning, or maybe you notice it after twisting it in the wrong direction. Either way, it is something you want to be able to get rid of as soon as possible!
If you are suffering from a stiff neck, you are likely experiencing soreness and difficulty moving. You may find exceptional difficulty when trying to turn your head from side to side.
Your stiff neck symptoms usually last for a few days to a week. The level of pain associated with it may range from mildly painful but annoying all the way up to extremely painful and life altering.
Your stiff neck may also be accompanied by:
- A headache
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Arm pain
A common reaction to a stiff neck is attempting to turn the entire body instead of just the neck when needing to look backwards or to the side.
