Symptoms, conditions and causes

What can I do for neck stiffness?

Neck has a lot of muscles, bones and ligaments that are tightly connected. When you have stiffness in your neck, this can be caused by several reasons.

General relief remedies for stiff neck

Aside from the gallbladder issues, neck stiffness can be caused due to the pinched nerve, injuries, muscle tension or wrong bone position. Certain massage and acupressure techniques can help resolve this issue.


  • Do a neck massage technique

  • Do acupressure on your neck

  • Do a neck stretch technique

  • Apply this neck and shoulder tension relief technique

  • You can get a massage tool and apply this neck relief technique

Potential cause of digestive organs issues

Our liver and pancreas are connected to the nerves that extend to the top of the body. If you have liver problems, gallbladder issues, blockage in the ducts or inflammation in that area this can definitely cause neck stiffness and different aches on the top side of the body. This is one of the reasons why massaging the neck doesn’t fully solve the neck pain and stiffness.

Apply the remedies below especially if you haven’t had an injury and you have neck stiffness for no reason.
