Cervical spine pain, or neck pain, and back pain are two of the most common reasons adults seek medical treatment each year. About 50% to 80% of American adults will suffer from neck or back pain at some time in their lives. The pain can feel like a dull ache or be sudden and sharp. A study conducted by the University of Washington found that more U.S. health care dollars are spent on these problems than almost any other medical condition. Only cancer, heart disease, and stroke consume more medical dollars. The pain can also have an impact on the patient’s quality of life.
