People often kid around about other people or things being “a pain in the neck”, but if you or somebody you know is experiencing neck pain, you know it’s no laughing matter.
About 1 out of ten of all people in the United States has experienced neck pain at some point in their lives. And 15.1% of people in the US said neck pain was their most common pain problem.
Neck Pain Defined.
Neck pain is defined as any form 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 frequently by women than men, and most individuals with neck pain tend to be between the ages of eighteen to 64. The typical age for neck pain patients is forty nine and a half years old.
Root Causes Of Neck Pain.
One of the most common causes of neck pain is aging. As you grow older you are more likely to have increased wear and tear on the vertebrae, discs and nerves in your spine, often triggering neck pain.
An additional common cause of neck pain is repetitive 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 and anxiety is also a contributing factor in a large number of 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.
Neck Pain Treatment All-natural Solutions.
Because neck pain tends to originate in the spinal column, one of the most successful neck pain treatments is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.
Our spinal disc doctors specialize in using natural, alternative 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.
Fast, Powerful Neck Pain Treatment.
Many patients can experience quick relief from neck pain and other symptoms with just a few gentle sessions. Plus, because we treat the causes of neck pain, instead of masking them with drugs or using invasive procedures including surgeries, once the pain is gone, it typically won’t return unless something else goes out of balance within the body.
Neck pain is among the most bothersome and annoying forms of pain you can experience. That’s because it can affect your ability to move naturally and can easily spread to other area of the body, such as the shoulders and back.
