FAQ’s: Really bad neck pain???!?So yesterday, on christmas day, when i was doing my hair my neck suddenly had a sharp pain. Since then I still have it and it's become worse.

You pulled a muscle. Go to bed with a turtleneck or a scarf on. The warmer it is, the better.
Your muscles have tightened up to cause the pain and that you can't move your head one way is that the muscles on the other side of your neck have spasmed to make them pull so you can't move your head the other way. To get rid of the pain and regain your neck movements you have to free up the muscles in your neck and here's how to do that: Neck: Put your hands alongside your head so your thumbs are on the front of the muscle under your ear and your fingers are on he back of the muscle, behind your neck. Squeeze your thumb and fingers together and hold. Relax your body. When your fingers and thumb touch, about two minutes, slowly lower your head as far as you can, release the pressure but hold your neck extended (lowered) for another 30 seconds. For best results relax your body first by taking a deep breath and exhaling then remain this relaxed.
Hi, It could be because of the things you have been doing that includes slouching. I was wondering if you have bad posture? Yes, though back pain occurs mostly, but still neck pain is associated to it. Or, you are doing your hair, you could've pulled some muscles, and that also triggers the pain.Neck, back and shoulder are the most common target of pain that comes from bad posture. Here's what i can advice: Go to a doctor and let it check for you. It maybe its more than something you suspected and its not worth the risk. Second, treat your bad posture. You can opt for free ways such as exercise and diet. If that suits you, then go for it. If not, posture braces are another alternative. It can straighten your back just as naturally as exercise. However, you need to buy them. Hope it helps! Happy holiday, Kim
