This is relatable to what your neck must do to support your head on a daily basis. Poor posture leads to biomechanical changes of your neck over time. Improper positioning of the cervical spine (neck) causes muscle tension, spasm and fatigue, which ultimately results in pain and discomfort. In addition, your neck is an extremely nerve rich area and dysfunction may lead to symptoms that travel into the shoulders, arms and hands.
