What is 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 suffering from neck pain, you know it’s no laughing matter.
About one out of 10 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 complaint.
Neck Pain Detailed.
Neck pain is defined as any sort 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 18 to 64. 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 resulting in neck pain.
Another common cause of neck pain is repeated 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. Stress is also a contributing factor in lots of cases of neck pain.
Like any type 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 Therapy Natural Solutions.
Because neck pain tends to originate in the spinal column, one of the most beneficial neck pain treatments is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.
Our spinal disc practitioners focus on 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 trigger neck pain.
Fast, Reliable Neck Pain Therapy.
Most patients can experience instant relief from neck pain and other symptoms with just a couple of gentle sessions. Plus, because we treat the causes of neck pain, as opposed to masking them with drugs or using invasive methods such as 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 absolute most bothersome and irritating forms of pain you can experience. That’s because it can affect your ability to move naturally and can easily spread to other portion of the body, such as the shoulders and back.
