Neck pain (cervical spine pain) can have a significant interference in your day to day activities. Cervical spine is a complex structure which supports your head (approx the weight of a bowling ball), houses the spinal cord and provides protection to blood vessels and nerves while allowing you to look behind your back. It plays an important role in efficient breathing pattern and supports proprioception/stability of your body.
