Many people wait too long to have the health of their spine assessed for the first time. And that’s why more than 80% of the population will suffer at least one—and often more than one time—incidents of neck pain during our lifetime. The condition can cause pain, limit mobility and sap energy day after day.

Pain qualifies as chronic when it persists for more than six months, be it constant or episodic. Always take this type of symptom seriously, because it can immensely undermine a person’s quality of life. Among the main consequences of chronic undiagnosed neck pain is cervical osteoarthritis (deterioration of the spine in the neck area).

The most common causes of chronic neck pain are

  • herniated discs
  • bulging discs
  • posture-related neck pain (scoliosis, for example)
  • facet syndrome
  • cervical-disc degeneration
  • repeated torticollis (painful neck stiffness).

Chronic neck pain can sometimes be accompanied by

  • pain extending into one arm or both
  • numbness extending into one arm or both
  • upper-limb weakness or numbness
  • vertigo and dizziness
  • headaches
  • limits on sports and day-to-day activities
  • loss of energy.

Early detection and quick action are your best bets for a truly effective recovery in most cases.
