In this episode I cover what causes a crick in the neck, how to avoid getting one and how you can help your neck to recover. When people say they have a crick in the neck it’s usually because they’ve woken up to find their neck is stiff and sore. Sometimes they can't turn their head. One reason it can happen is that you slept weird. But there's also underlying factors. Many people spend the most time at work and commuting to and from work. When we sit and work or drive for a long period of time, we're staying in one position, and our neck is often offset, and that sets it up for strain. We carry that potential for strain and even the emotional stresses that we incur throughout our day into our sleep.
