Are You Suffering From Neck Pain?
If you or someone you know is suffering from neck pain, Thrive Chiropractic in North Tonawanda might be the right place to start.
Our necks take on a lot of stress throughout the day, sometimes without evening realizing it. Whether we are sitting all day for work, leaning over to read a book, looking down at our phones, turning to look behind us while we are driving, or being active through sport and other fitness, our necks have an important job.
Neck pain is defined as, “a pain in the neck with or without pain referring or traveling into one or both arms that lasts for at least one day.”
The Global Burden of Disease performed a study and ranked neck pain as the 4th highest condition in terms of disability out of the global population. At any given time, about 10-20% of people report having neck pain, while 50% of people report that they have experienced neck pain sometime over the last 6 months.
The neck, similar to the back, is composed of bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints that surround and protect your spinal cord and nerves. It is the most mobile region of the spine, making it a very common place for injury and reoccurring episodes of pain. As many as 50-85% of people who experience neck pain, report having it return anywhere between 1-5 years.

- Acute injury (whiplash)
