Several studies found the prevalence of neck pain increases with age, at least until about 50 to 60 years of age, after which symptom reporting seems to decline (Hasvold and Johnsen 1993; Makela et al. 1991; Lock et al. 1999; Takala et al. 1982; Andersson et al. 1993; Kramer 1990). Weak associations have been found between smoking, obeSity, low-pressure pain thresholds and neck pain (Makela et al.

2001; Bechgaard 198 1) or the same (30%) (Disla et al. 1994). Differential diagnosis between pains of visceral or musculoskeletal origin begins with the history and identification of the aggravating and relieving factors. For instance, angina pectoris is often , but not exclusively, sited around the upper left lateral trunk region , and more importantly is associated with exertion and activity and eases with rest. Many musculoskeletal problems have opposite aggravating and relieVing factors and symptoms are more likely to be provoked by sustained postures or certain movements.

Neurons in the central nervous system receive afferents from structures in the cervical spine and the shoulder girdle, chest wall and upper limb . The brain is unable to determine the true source of nociceptor signals from the shared neuron (Oliver and Middleditch 199 1 ; Bogduk 1 997). Referred pain simply reflects the lack of localising information available with nociceptor activity from deep structures. The quality of somatic referred pain is deep and aching in quality, vague and hard to localise.
