What is causing the pain in your head or back of the neck?

Your neck is made up of vertebrae that extend from the skull to the upper torso, with cervical discs that absorb the shock between the bones. The many bones, ligaments, and muscles in your neck support your head and allow for motion that we take for granted, until there is pain.

Understanding Head and Neck Pain

Many people will experience head and neck pain at some point in their life. The cause can be something as simple as poor posture, overuse, stress, or sleeping in an awkward position. Other times, head and neck pain is caused by a fall, whiplash from a car accident, or a sports injury resulting in a concussion.
