Exploring Neck Pain
People often poke fun about other people or things being “a pain in the neck”, but if you or somebody you know is dealing with neck pain, you know it’s no laughing matter.
About one out of 10 of all people in the US has experienced neck pain at some time in their lives. And 15.1% of people in the United States said neck pain was their most common pain problem.
Neck pain is defined as any type of pain that occurs from the top of your shoulders to the bottom of your head. Signs and symptoms might be mild to severe and often limit the range of motion of your head, shoulders and upper body.
Neck pain is reported more frequently by women than men, and most individuals with neck pain tend to be between the ages of 18 to sixty four. The average age for neck pain patients is 49.5 years old.
Causes of Neck Pain.
One of the most common sources of neck pain is aging. As you age you are more likely to have increased wear and tear on the vertebrae, discs and nerves in your spine, often bring about neck pain.
An additional common cause of neck pain is repeated motion injuries. If you job requires you to hold your head at the same angle for an extended period of time, this can increase your risk of developing neck pain. 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.
Because neck pain tends to come from the spinal column, one of the most powerful neck pain treatments is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.
Our spinal disc experts focus on using natural, holistic techniques that can return the spine to its original position. This can relieve the pressures on the discs, nerves and vertebrae that can trigger neck pain.
