Your head is heavier than you think. It is supported by the cervical (neck) spine and the muscles that surround it. Activities such as driving, computer work, lifting children, carrying things in and out of a car, decorating (in particular painting a ceiling) and holding a phone in the crook of your neck together with stress and injuries such as whiplash can all result in the loss of proper movement in the joints of the neck. This in turn can cause irritation of the nerves that exit your spine at those levels leading to neck pain and muscle spasm and pain in the shoulders and arms together with sensation loss or alteration.
