What are the causes of neck complaints?

Neck complaints such as pain and stiffness in the neck can have various causes, including: 


  • a wrong attitude

  • wrong tax

  • trauma, e.g. an accident 

  • degeneration 

  • persistent stressful situation 

  • cramp due to cold


There is often a combination of the causes mentioned. In addition, many neck complaints have their origins in tension or stiffening of the upper back. This may have to do with your attitude, but emotional overload (current or in the past) can also play a role. 


That is why it is always important that we look beyond the complaint itself, but also take into account your lifestyle and other factors. Relaxation and awareness are important aspects of the treatment for all our therapists.
