Introduction to Back and Neck Pain

What is back and neck pain?

Your spine has 33 bones (vertebrae) in a stack that extends from your lower back (sacrum) all the way to the base of your skull. Rubbery pads (discs) act as shock absorbers between each vertebra, while muscles, ligaments, and nerves help to provide your neck and back with a broad range of motion. 

If an injury or disease damages any of these structures, it may lead to back or neck pain.

Neck Pain can be caused by:

Some of these problems result from injuries, while others are due to too much stress on your spine over a period of time, such as having poor posture while working at a computer.
