Neck pain is a serious health problem in industrialized countries, especially among the young and middle age people. Neck pain has multifactorial origin; its occurrence can be associated with physical and psychological factors, and sustained muscle activity of the trapezoids muscle. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and muscle relaxants are most commonly used drugs for relief of acute neck pain. The use of B vitamins (Milgamma, Milgamma Compositum) at high therapeutic doses for the treatment of neck pain is justified; antinociceptive and anti-inflammatory effects of B vitamins have been confirmed in experimental and clinical studies. Ability of B vitamins to potentiate the effects of analgesics reduces the doses and duration of administration of NSAIDs required for adequate anesthesia, making the treatment safer.
