Neck Pain

Neck pain is a major contributor to disability worldwide. About 70% of the population experiences an episode of neck pain at some point in their lives and up to 15% experience chronic neck pain. The joints and musculature making up the cervical spine allow for a large degree of movement and proprioceptive input important for hearing, vision, and balance. We rely so heavily on the movement and proprioceptive input from the cervical spine that when neck pain interrupts these functions, significant disability may result.
