A neck strain can cause discomfort and be surprisingly painful. Depending on how serious the damage is, your neck strain or sprain can cause issues that range from discomfort and stiffness to muscle spasms that can be extremely painful.
The first step to healing is beginning to understand the underlying reasons why it hurts.
Within and around your cervical spine, are a myriad soft tissues, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. They work together to support your head and neck and also allow the neck to move freely in all directions. A sprain or strain of the neck occurs when anywhere from one to a combination of soft tissues are injured or stretched beyond their normal range.
