Back and Neck Pain
One of the most prominent reasons why individuals visit the physician is lower back pain that is often caused by injury, accident, or muscle strain. There are more chronic forms of the ailment that involve structural issues like herniated discs, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease.
The scope of lower back pain in individuals can range from mild to heavy pains which sometimes affects the daily activities of the individual. With this ailment, the level of physical damage does not correlate with the level of pain being suffered by the patient. Sometimes, a simple strain can cause extreme pain in the lower back making it difficult for the patient to walk or stand. In another situation, a large or completely degenerated disc can be painless.
Neck pain can occur as a result of car accidents, muscle strain, arthritis, and a pinched nerve. Most times, patients who suffer from neck pain can get relief through adequate rest, massages, and the use of pain-relieving pills.
