Many people experience neck pain due to different factors. It may be from sustained poor posture, overuse, injury from slip and fall, contact sports, using a computer for a prolonged period of time, or sleeping in an uncomfortable position.

In some cases, shoulder pain can be a sign of a serious injury or illness that would require a physiotherapist to refer on for further investigation. However, most of the time, shoulder pain isn’t caused by a severe condition and can be relieved within a few days.

There are a lot of solutions around that claim to relieve your neck pain. But if you’re looking for genuine ways to sort out your problem, here are some of the best solutions:
