Back and neck pain can have a significant impact on your life. Many people suffer from back and neck pain. In most cases it’s very difficult to identify a single cause for back pain. Acute back or neck pain may be triggered by poor posture, bending awkwardly, lifting incorrectly, whiplash, sleeping in an awkward position or a disorder such as arthritis. It usually lasts for a few weeks and gets better without seeking medical help. However, if you’ve chronic back pain, that has persisted for six weeks or more, then it’s important to see a doctor for an assessment of your pain and advice on reducing its impact. Your lifestyle may be putting strain on your back, you may have an injury or, it may be age-related or due to a disease such as disc degeneration and osteoarthritis.
