Pain description


Neck pain is a common problem (1:1). In fact, it’s estimated that between 22%-70% (2:1) of the population will experience neck pain in their lifetime. The pain may extend to the shoulders and upperback or may cause a headache. (3:17) Neck pain usually results from strains and sprains (3:6), sudden neck movements and trauma from falls or accidents. (4:7)

It might seem obvious, but because your head is supported by your upper back and lower neck, (4:2) strain in those areas will usually cause neck pain if this support system is affected adversely, (4:6) (5:1) Sometimes, you may not be able to move your neck very much at all. (4:2)
