Neck or cervical spine is a marvel of nature that can support above 15 pounds of weight while making movements in different directions. No other spinal region can move so freely. However, this mobility also makes the neck highly susceptible to pain and injury.
Chronic neck pain is the second most common condition that exists among people in the USA following chronic lower back pain. According to the research, nearly 70% of the USA population experience neck pain at some point in their lifetime. Moreover, women are more vulnerable to neck pain than men.
Neck or cervical pain is another common spine-related condition. It can occur due to different factors including accidents, injury to the neck, muscle strain, pinched nerves, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis or arthritis.
Other common causes of chronic neck pain include;
- Whiplash injury due to auto accidents
- Placing head and neck in odd positions during sleeping
- Lifting heavy objects
- Sitting for too long while using computer
All these conditions can lead to chronic neck pain which can be quite painful and restricts neck movements. Chronic neck pain can be on one or both sides of your neck. In some people, it may shift from one side to another and moves down the back. While many cases of neck pain resolve on their own with rest, massage and pain-relieving medications, in some people the neck pain escalate into chronic neck pain, which needs a proactive treatment approach.
