Back Pain & Neck Pain

Neck and back pain are one of the most common problems seen by physiotherapists. It is one of the leading causes of disability in the UK.

According to research, 4 in 5 people will experience neck or back pain at some point in their life. That sounds like a lot of people but it won’t affect everyone in the same way. For some people, back pain will be a simple ache that corrects itself over time but for others it can cause long-standing pain and disability.

Types of neck and back Pain

There are a number of reasons why neck and back pain occur .Some of the well-known types of neck and back pain include nerve root irritation (e.g sciatica), muscles spasm, bone deformity, ligament or muscle strain, or intervertebral disc prolapse or degeneration. Each of these problems can affect individuals differently – in some cases causing severe pain and disability and in others producing no symptoms at all.
