Back & Neck Pain Info

“God is a concept by which we measure our pain.”

John Lennon

 

As the term suggests, back pain is a pain that is felt in the back. It usually originates from nerves, muscles, joints, bones, or other tissues connected to the spine.

It may have a sudden onset or it can be a chronic pain; it can be intermittent or be , stay in one place or radiate to other areas. It may be a dull ache, or a sharp or piercing or burning sensation. The pain may radiate into the arms and hands as well as the legs or feet, and may include symptoms other than pain. These symptoms may include tingling, weakness or numbness.

Back pain is one of the most frequent health complaints, with about 90% of adults experiencing back pain at some point in their life, and 50% of working adults experience back pain at least once a year.

So it is a major problem.

The spine is a complex interconnecting network of nerves, joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments, all of which are capable of producing pain. Large nerves that originate in the spine and go to the legs and arms can make pain radiate to the extremities

Neck pain is also common problem, with two-thirds of the population experiencing neck pain at some point in their lives.

Although it is typically experienced in the neck, the pain can be caused by numerous other spinal problems. Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in the neck and upper back, or pinching of the nerves coming from the cervical vertebrae.

Joint disruption in the neck creates pain, as does joint disruption in the upper back.

The head is supported by the lower neck and upper back, and it is these areas that commonly cause neck pain. The top three joints in the neck allow for most movement of the neck and head. The lower joints in the neck and those of the upper back create a supportive structure for the head to sit on.

If this support system is adversely affected, then the muscles in the area will tighten, leading to neck pain. As the pain is mechanical in nature, most people may benefit from visiting an osteopath or getting regular massages.

There certain natural health remedies which may benefit people experiencing pain in neck and back.

  • Where has been the last 5 plus years of my life

    star

    Amaaazzzing. Now taken 2 a day for 6 days. Each morning a little less stiff, less pain, more freedom of movement. Went for 3 weekly back/shoulders massage today and therapist couldn't figure out why everything felt looser, less congested, tight and easier to work on. Until I told him about this product. He was very, very impressed. Got osteopath next week, can't wait for his reaction!
