Neck Pain

What Causes Neck Pain?

Neck pain is a common complaint, affecting two thirds of people at some point in their lives1, and up to 15% of the population at any one time. Studies suggest that, much like low back pain, patients with neck pain are likely to experience improvement and flareups2.

Neck or cervical pain can take many forms, ranging from a dull ache to severe pain producing radiation of pain or numbness into the arms or fingers. Neck conditions can also produce headache, depending on the structures of the neck involved.
