neck pain causes

This stretching of the neck does stop just there, however, think of our typical day to day activities; when we eat, drive, shower or even when we are just in conversation with someone we can be inclined to stick our neck out a little. Given our heads are pretty heavy objects even if we protrude our head out in the slightest the neck has to support this weight however even a small or protruding the neck and the amount of weight it has to support multiplies (see image above, 2 inches forward and the weight is nearly 3 times as much!).
