Yoga Poses to Treat Neck Pain


Neck is the one part of the body that is subjected to a lot of repeated stress and minor injuries which one doesn’t keep a track of. The most common form of neck pain is posterior neck pain or pain in the back of the neck. This region is responsible for the support and movement of the head.

The neck has complicated biomechanics. It supports the head, moves the head in various planes and carries the spinal cord and the spinal nerves from the brain to the lumbosacral region enclosed in a sheath in the spinal canal of the cervical, thoracic, lumbar and sacral group of vertebrae.
