Neck pain is commonly caused by a muscle injury, which can occur if a muscle is overused, by repetitive movements or through injury such as whiplash.
Sitting for prolonged periods in an awkward position can result in back pain. As can lifting heavy objects, falls or conditions such as ankylosing spondylitis. Problems with the back or neck can be due to the muscles, bones or disks and may present as localised pain or pain that can travel down the arm or leg.
If not treated, neck pain can travel to the shoulders and arms. Similarly, back pain can travel to the buttock and even the legs (especially if there is damage to the sciatic nerve).
Neck and back pain can often be treated at home with exercise, stretching, anti-inflammatory medicine and hot or cold packs. However, if the neck or back pain is persistent and is impacting your day-to-day life, it may be beneficial to seek professional help. This is where our back and neck pain rehabilitation can help.
