So when any of these parts are affected, mostly due to poor posture and overuse, we tend to suffer neck pain. Neck pain is not always related to an underlying condition. It may be caused by bad sleeping posture, Injury or trauma around the neck, prolonged activities that force you to crane your neck, carrying a heavy shoulder bag, gritting your teeth. Studies have also shown that neck pain is more common among women and the aging population.
