Most patients who suffer from neck injuries or aches and pains in the neck and upper back area, have decreased energy and fatigue throughout the day. Sleep quality is often times affected and even with a good night of sleep, fatigue seems to be a linking symptom to neck pain most of the times.
Most patients who have neck pain suffer from poor posture and forward head syndrome which can create a hump in the upper back and a forward head as the name implies. This forwarded posture of the head stretches the nerves, ligaments and muscles in the upper neck and will cause an interference with the nervoys system which can lead to insomnia and fatigue. Remember your cervical spine (neck) is extremely close to your brain and your brain controls every single cell in your body.
