Neck Pain (NP) and Upper Back Pain (UBP) are very common conditions which are typically caused by a low grade repetitive strain that usually occurs from too much computer or phone use and usually associated with prolonged sitting/bad posture. They usually occur together as the upper back is the support of the neck and a forward rounded shoulder position (hunched upper back) typically comes with a forward head posture (anterior head carriage). Symptoms can range from something as simple as a low grade ache/soreness to something as severe as a gross loss of range of motion with a referral of pain into the shoulder and even down the arm. Oftentimes acute and chronic NP can be associated with tension or migraine headaches.
