What causes kink in neck?
The cervical spine can be susceptible to injury in part due to the smaller size of the vertebrae and its relatively large range of motion which can cause a kink in your neck. Neck pain and headaches, or shoulder muscle pain can often be due to poor posture and weak surrounding musculature.
