Neck pain is a very common complaint. As demands in office work increase, improper desk setup (ergonomics) and poor posture strain neck and back muscles and over time can develop irreversible conditions. Taking the right preventative measures as soon as pain is experienced can prevent you from requiring surgery in the long run.
There are two types of pain associated with neck pain; acute and chronic. Typically pain which does not last for more than six weeks is labeled as acute pain, while pain lasting over six weeks may be chronic.
