Table 4 The age-specific one-year incidence proportion (%) with 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) of short- and/or long-duration BNP in 2006 among men and women without BNP in 2005, and of recovery from BNP in 2006 among men and women with short- and/or long-duration BNP in 2005

From: The age- and sex-specific occurrence of bothersome neck pain in the general population – results from the Stockholm public health cohort
