Neck Pain Treatment

Neck pain is a common problem in our society. It is researched to be more prevalent in higher-income countries and in urban areas within those countries. Part of this may have to do with neck pain and the connection to office work that is more prevalent in a higher-income urban setting.

When it comes to gender types and the prevalence of migraines, women are three times more likely to experience a migraine. The American Migraine Study found that among 30,000 respondents 18.2% were female and 6.5% male. This stands true for females from the age of 12 across the lifespan.
