The neck is a vital part of our body that is designed for strength, stability, food, air and nerve communication. Our neck is made up of a network of bones, joints, nerves, tendons and muscles that connects our head to our body. The neck creates a path for the spinal chord and holds up the head, which weighs an average of 5 kilograms! The neck performs a heavy-duty task of making sure we have stability, mobility and strength in our head movements, so no wonder neck pain is so common.
