Back & Neck Pain

Low back and neck pain are very common. Most people experience it at least once in their lifetime. For most people, the pain is temporary. But back and neck pain can become long-lasting (chronic) if a person has ongoing poor posture and body mechanics, unstable core/postural muscles, ongoing walking (gait) issues, or if under stress and/or depressed.

Low back pain can happen anywhere below the ribs and above the legs. The lower back bears most of the body’s weight. Therefore, there can be many causes for pain such as injury, aging, pregnancy, herniated disc, compression fractures, joint issues, illness, genetic spine issues and overuse.

Neck pain can be anywhere from the base of the skull to between the shoulder blades. The neck can be subject to joint sprains, muscle strains, disc disease, neurological conditions, muscle spasms, postural dysfunction, joint stiffness, and myofascial restrictions.
