Common Causes of Neck Pain

The most common causes of a stiff and painful neck is a muscle sprain or muscle strain – targeting the levator scapula muscle – located in the back and side of the neck. The levator scapula muscle connects the cervical spine – the first 7 vertebrae in the neck area – with the shoulder . The levator scapula muscle is controlled by the 3 rd and 4 th cervical nerves, C3 and C4.

The levator scapula muscle is likely to be inadvertently strained or sprained during common, day-to-day physical activities. Therefore, you may not realize that a serious injury has occurred.

  • Sleeping with your neck in an awkward position
  • Collisions – e.g. car accident – whiplash – or hard collisions in sports activities
  • Strenuous household activity – e.g. vacuuming, installing a high shelf
  • Excessive turning of the head from side-to-side – e.g. swimming, basketball, soccer, dancing
  • Poor posture – e.g. hunching over a computer for hours at a time, or cradling a phone between the neck and shoulder
  • Excessive stress leading to constant locked tension in the neck
