Study Design. Population‐based, cross‐sectional mailed survey. Objective. To determine the lifetime, period, and point prevalence of neck pain and its related disability among Saskatchewan adults and investigate the presence and strength of nonresponse bias. Summary of Background Data. In Europe, the life‐time and point prevalence of neck pain is almost as high as the prevalence of low back pain. Similarly, chronic neck pain is highly prevalent and a common source of disability in the working… 
The association between prevalent neck pain and health-related quality of life: a cross-sectional analysis
