Abstract :

Analysis of data from the Global Burden of Disease Study between 1990 and 2017 shows that neck pain is a serious public health problem in the general population, with the highest burden in Norway, Finland and Denmark. In order to reduce the future burden of this condition, population awareness about risk factors and preventive strategies for neck pain must be increased.
