In pain? Where
does it hurt?
Back pain is among the most incapacitating of injuries, often rendering work, play and basic movement impossible.
Spine injuries and back pain affect people from all walks of life, young and old, male and female, active or not.
They are the most common problems encountered in general neurosurgery and often require specialized diagnosis and treatment.
Have neck pain? Any part of your neck – muscles, bones, joints, tendons, ligaments or nerves – can cause it. Pain may also come from your shoulder, jaw, head or upper arms.
Muscle strain or tension often causes neck pain. Sleeping position, falls or accidents are other common causes of neck pain.
