A sore neck. Particularly annoying. It can even cause a disturbing headache. Wrong shoes can be the reason for your neck pain. Of course, this requires a very different approach that a herniated disc of a cervical vertebra for example.
The cause of a painful neck?
Wrong posture – especially with lots of screen watching.
Cold drafts along the neck.
A wrong movement.
Sleeping in a bad position.
A herniated disc of an intervertebral disc in the neck. As a result of a fall or an accident, for example.
A problem with the teeth. The jaw joint or one of the teeth.
Unsuitable footwear. This causes a misalignment of the pelvis, which causes the entire spine to try to compensate. Headaches can even be the result.
So it comes down to getting a good diagnosis first. And only then can a well-chosen and appropriate treatment follow.
First consult ‘common sense’, then possibly go to the family doctor, an osteopath, a back specialist, a dentist, a physical therapist, an occupational therapist…
Their approach will vary greatly.
So it is important to find out the root of the real problem or the causal elements before thinking about choosing a treatment.
