Understanding 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 struggling with neck pain, you know it’s serious.
About 1 out of ten of all people in the USA has experienced neck pain at some time in their lives. And 15.1% of people in the USA said neck pain was their most common pain problem.
Neck Pain Described.
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 eighteen to sixty four. The average age for neck pain patients is forty nine and a half years of ages.
Causes of Neck Pain.
One of the most common causes of neck pain is aging. As you age 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 recurring 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 and anxiety is also a contributing factor in many cases of neck pain.
Like any form 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 Natural Solutions.
Because neck pain tends to come from the spinal column, one of the most effective neck pain treatments is gentle, non-surgical spinal decompression treatment.
Our spinal disc experts specialize in 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 cause neck pain.
Fast, Effective Neck Pain Solution.
The majority of 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, 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 absolute most annoying 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, like the shoulders and back.
