– The causes and symptoms of neck tension.
– Some simple ways to treat this syndrome.
Usually, a syndrome is a recognizable pattern, behaviors, symptoms or signs that a thing exhibits.
When a tension is placed on a thing, it means that the thing is in a condition of being held between two or more forces. And in most cases, these forces are acting in opposition to each other.
When a person is experiencing a neck tension syndrome, it means the neck is in a psychological state of being tense.
Also, when you put forces on the neck beyond what it can take or using/stretching it beyond its elasticity.
In most cases, tension neck syndrome causes fatigue, stiffness in the neck, neck pain or a headache.
In the human body, the neck connects the head and the body. When a pain occurs to the neck, it can affect some other parts of the body such that the shoulders or even the head.
At some point or after a particular activity, the neck, especially the back of the neck, feels tense.
