Turn away from neck pain
Poor lifestyle habits can trigger chronic neck pain that impedes daily activities and raises your risk of serious health issues. Neck pain is a nagging ailment that affects everyone at some time. In fact, approximately 80% of people experience neck pain during their lifetime, and 20% to 50% deal with it annually, according to Dr. Frank Pedlow, an orthopedic spine surgeon at Harvard-affiliated Massachusetts General Hospital.
