Mechanoreceptive Pain: According to the CDC, “more than 50% of U.S. adults (125 million) had a musculoskeletal pain disorder in 2012.”
“More than 40% of adults with a musculoskeletal pain disorder used a complementary health approach for any reason in 2012. This was significantly higher than use among persons without a musculoskeletal pain disorder (24.1%). Use of complementary health approaches for any reason among persons with neck pain or problems was more than twice as high as use among persons without these problems.”
“Among adults with a musculoskeletal pain disorder, use of any complementary health approach was highest among those with neck pain or problems (50.6%), followed by persons with other musculoskeletal problems (46.2%).”
“Use of complementary health approaches for any reason among persons with neck pain or problems was more than twice as high as use among persons without these problems.”
