Understanding Neck Pain
People often joke 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 United States has experienced neck pain at some point in their lives. And 15.1% of people in the United States said neck pain was their most common pain issue.
Neck Pain Defined.
Neck pain is defined as any sort of pain that occurs from the top of your shoulders to the bottom of your head. Signs and symptoms can 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 49.5 years old.
Reasons For Neck Pain.
One of the most common reasons for neck pain is aging. As you get older you are more likely to have increased deterioration on the vertebrae, discs and nerves in your spine, often leading to 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 a long period of time, this can increase your risk of developing neck pain. Anxiety and stress is also a contributing factor in many cases of neck pain.
Like any type of pain, neck pain is nature’s way of telling 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 All-natural Solutions.
Because neck pain tends to originate in the spinal column, one of the most efficient neck pain treatments is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.
Our spinal disc practitioners specialize in using natural, comprehensive techniques that can return the spine to its original position. This can relieve the pressures on the discs, nerves and vertebrae that can lead to neck pain.
Fast, Reliable Neck Pain Solution.
Most patients can experience instant relief from neck pain and other symptoms with just a handful of gentle treatments. Plus, because we treat the causes of neck pain, instead of masking them with drugs or using invasive procedures 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 one of the 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 parts of the body, such as the shoulders and back.
