Within the general population, about 12% of adult females and 9% of adult males are experiencing neck pain at any point in time. The occurrence of Delafield and Hartland neck pain is almost half as much as the occurrence of back pain. People who have back pain usually take off from work; however, of the 45% of the working population who experience stiff neck, many don’t. Oftentimes, as the neck becomes more and more flexible, it loses stability and protection. This can cause the structures in the neck to become disrupted, and results in neck pain.
Neck pain can be used interchangeably with pain in the shoulder and shoulder pain can sometimes be pain in the neck. According to Dr Jeffrey Clark DC, neck and/or shoulder pain usually occurs when the soft tissues (muscles, ligaments, and tendons) are injured. Whiplash can cause these injuries. Irritation from arthritis in the neck area or upper spine can create pain that ranges from the neck to shoulders. Neck pain can also be related to certain health conditions dealing with the heart, lungs, or spinal cord.
