Back and neck pain is one of the most common causes of skeletal pain-almost 80% of the general population will have a complaint of spinal discomfort or pain at some stage in their life.
For many, it can be debilitation and recurring. Lower back or neck pain is most commonly associated with improper use- or mechanical causes- an issue with the joints and muscles which cause pain and discomfort in certain positions or with specific movements.
Stiff joints can become inflamed and painful. Other causes of spine pain can be as a result of trauma (sprain or fracture), arthritic changes or underlying causes, in which case a thorough assessment will determine if scans or further tests are needed. Our chiropractors are able to send for these if necessary.
