Neck pain is common and normally improves within 6-12 weeks
It’s not usually serious and most often eases on its own or with simple advice and neck exercises. Neck pain is often caused by a simple muscle strain or tension. Other causes include injury, such as whiplash, or gradual changes to the joints due to natural ageing.
With the right guidance and support, most people with neck pain will recover without the need for medical help. Understanding neck pain and what you can do to help yourself get better is an essential part of your recovery.
