Neck & Back Pain

What is Neck & Back Pain and How It Develops

Neck and Back pain is normally related to each other and can also be called Cervicalgia. The neck and back pain affects one or more of the structures that make up the neck, which mostly includes our muscles, spine, nerves, intervertebral discs, and vertebrae. This pain can be felt in the back of the neck and it may extend to the sides and also towards your arms, head, and back. In case the pain lasts for more than three months, it will be considered chronic neck and back pain by the healthcare service providers.

Neck pain is a very common discomfort among people because the cervical spine is characterized by being very flexible and allowing greater mobility than any other zone of ​​our spine. It is the most common condition after lower back pain. It seems to be more common among women, although it affects both genders and most of the population will suffer from it at some point in their lives.

Common Causes of Neck & Back Pain

Neck and back-related diseases occur due to muscle or ligament factors that could be directly related to poor physical posture, ergonomics, chronic muscle fatigue, and extensive stress. The most common causes of neck and back-related pain are injuries to our soft tissues which include our muscles and even ligaments, due to any type of trauma or deterioration that might progress with time. Activities that we carry out daily at work or at home, such as watching television, sitting in front of a computer, or sleeping in a bad posture are often responsible for this muscle tension or strain.

Accidents or accident-led falls and concussions, especially traffic accidents, can also cause cervical injuries with varying damages, it could be fractured vertebrae or even a vertical whiplash. Whiplash usually occurs when people are traveling in a vehicle and suffer a posterior bump. The neck in this situation is subjected to a flexion movement, followed by another opposite extension movement. When these two movements abruptly occur at a high speed, the cervical musculature is not prepared for it, and contracts abruptly and drags the cervical spine with it, which may cause damage to the neck and back area.

Other Medical Reasons

Similarly, other possible causes of neck pain may include medical conditions such as fibromyalgia, Cervical arthritis, or spondylosis. There are risks to intervertebral discs that are cartilaginous elements filled with a gel-like substance that provides cushioning to the spine and acts as a shock absorbent. Small spinal fractures are a consequence of osteoporosis and spinal stenosis which is the narrowing of the spinal canal that can also lead to neck and back pain. There are various other reasons why there might be neck or back-related pain, so it will be ideal if the patient directly gets attentive care from the healthcare service provider.
