Why does my neck hurt when I’m at my desk?

Why does my neck hurt when I’m at my desk?

In today’s FAQ video, we answer the question “What does my neck hurt when I’m at my desk?”

Watch below to hear our answer and leave any questions you may have in the comments section below.

I recently had a treatment by my therapist at Carter Physiotherapy for a chronic stiff neck issue that has plagued me for over 5 years. At the beginning of the treatment it was painful to turn my head from side to side and I could not begin to try and look back over my shoulder due to pain and stiffness.

After several minutes of treatment, on either side of my neck and into my shoulders, I experienced a range of motion that was greatly improved and the pain had subsided. They also gave me extensive instructions on three different types of stretching exercises and how exactly to perform the motion as well as how long to hold the stretch in order to keep the problem from returning.

I plan to return to Carter Physiotherapy to continue to work out the joint and muscle tension and stiffness that has built up over the years.

I was in a traumatic car accident involving an 18-wheeler and had shoulder and neck pain for months. I went to one PT, and while I experienced some relief, I still had spasms and cramping. Carter Physiotherapy’s Manual Therapy really took the tension out of my muscles, and they took the time to explain what they were doing and why. Combined with some weight-lifting and improved posture, I’ve felt better ever since.
