Neck and shoulder pain is typically caused by stress in the Trapezius muscle. This large muscle is often referred to as the “coat hanger” because of it’s position at the base of the skull that extends down the neck and across the shoulder area. Pain in this area can be triggered by things like improper posture, tilting your head to hold a phone in place, sitting in a chair with no arm rests, and even sleeping on the wrong pillow. You can prevent neck and shoulder pain with exercises, focusing on your posture, and using neck pain pillows.
