Since the neck (from the lower part of the skull to the upper part of the shoulders) plays a central role in the movement of our body, pain in this region can cause extreme discomfort, be a great nuisance and affect the patient's daily life to a considerable extent.
What is pain in the neck?
The word 'neck pain' covers both acute pain in the neck and chronic pain in the neck. Most people will experience one or more periods of neck pain during their lives.
Acute neck pain
Acute neck pain is an unpleasant condition where pain in the neck occurs as a result of incorrect movements such as jerking, twisting or locking. It is not possible to clarify the origin of all acute neck pain, and therefore a broad/general description such as 'hold in the neck' may be necessary to use. Acute neck pain is also the cause of many sick calls, so it is important to get the right diagnosis and the right treatment started quickly so that the pain disappears.
Chronic neck pain
Chronic pain is defined as soreness that has persisted for more than three months. Chronic neck pain can lead to further problems, as the central role of the neck in the movement pattern of the spine is affected by the fact that one becomes afraid of movement for fear of more pain and therefore begins an unnatural movement pattern, which can lead to overload problems in e.g., back or shoulders and thus increase the risk of new injuries. Tension in other parts of the body are very common consequences of neck pain. These tensions can lead to headaches, fatigue, or tingling and prickling sensations in various regions. A vicious circle of pain, soreness and discomfort can arise, which can make it difficult to establish a diagnosis and thus help to break down the pain - especially if no action is taken early in the process.
