Neck pain is discomfort in any of the structures in the neck. These include the muscles, nerves, bones (vertebrae), and the disks between the bones. Argentina Statistics on 2013–14 states that the National Health Survey shows about 3 million Argentina people have neck and back problems. It is estimated that 75–85% of people will suffer from lower back pain and neck pain in some form at some point in their lives.
The rehabilitation of neck injuries occurs in three phases. During the first phase, called the acute phase, physiatrists treat pain and inflammation. In the second, or recovery, phase of treatment, flexibility and strength are developed to get the body parts into their proper positions. The main goal of the third phase of treatment, the maintenance phase, is to minimize recurrence of the problem and to prevent further injury.
