Back and Neck Pain
Lower back pain is one of the most common ailments and leading causes of physician visits. While many cases can be linked to an injury, accident or muscle strain — others involve more “structural” issues including herniated discs, spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease.
Regardless of its cause, lower back injury can range from mildly annoying to downright debilitating. Ironically, the severity of pain is often unrelated to the level of physical damage. In fact, a simple strain can cause excruciating lower back pain that can make it difficult to walk or even stand, whereas a large herniated disc or completely degenerated disc can sometimes be relatively painless.
Neck pain can be caused by a number of factors, including car accident, muscle strain, arthritis, or a “pinched” nerve. While most neck pain tends to resolve itself with rest, pain relievers and massage, some people experience significant trauma and suffer chronic pain that requires a more proactive treatment.
