People often kid around about other people or things being “a pain in the neck”, but if you or somebody you know is suffering from neck pain, you know it’s serious.
About 1 out of ten of all people in the USA has experienced neck pain at some point in their lives. And 15.1% of people in the USA said neck pain was their most common pain complaint.
What is Neck Pain?
Neck pain is defined as any kind of pain that occurs from the top of your shoulders to the bottom of your head. Symptoms may be mild to severe and often limit the range of motion of your head, shoulders and upper body.
Neck pain is reported more often by women than men, and most people with neck pain tend to be between the ages of eighteen to 64. The typical age for neck pain patients is 49.5 years old.
What Are Some Common Causes of Neck Pain?
One of the most common reasons for neck pain is aging. As you get older you are more likely to have increased wear and tear on the vertebrae, discs and nerves in your spine, often bring about neck pain.
Another common cause of neck pain is repetitive motion injuries. This can raise your risk of developing neck pain if you job requires you to hold your head at the same angle for a long period of time. Anxiety and stress is also a contributing factor in many cases of neck pain.
Like any kind of pain, neck pain is nature’s way of advising you that something is not right within your body. Pain indicates that the natural balance has been disturbed and that something is out of whack.
Natural Solutions to Neck Pain
Because neck pain tends to originate in the spinal column, one of the most powerful neck pain treatments is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.
Our spinal disc practitioners use natural techniques that can return the spine to its original position. This can relieve the pressures on the discs, nerves and vertebrae that can cause neck pain.
