Most neck and back pain can be treated successfully with conservative (non-operative) treatments. Neck and back pain can be debilitating; therefore, it is important that a knowledgeable professional (your physical therapist) develop a comprehensive treatment plan to address all aspects of your condition.
Some of the common causes are:
- Disc herniation
- Spinal stenosis
- Ankylosing spondylitis
- Whip lash
- Pinched nerves
- Post surgical fusion
- Post surgical laminectomy
Posture is an important key element in maintaining a healthy spine. Correct posture is a cornerstone of physical therapy for neck and back pain. Poor posture results in additional wear and tear on the spine. Postural misalignment can cause symptoms such as radiating pain away from the back and spine due to a pinched nerve or muscle spasms that can often create headaches and neck pain. Poor posture can lead to various conditions within the spine and involving the surrounding structures including muscles, nerves, ligaments and tendons. After an injury or surgery to the spine, poor posture can slow the process of healing and aggravate symptoms. Your physical therapist will assess your specific needs in regards to your posture and its effects on your condition.

Back and neck pain can be debilitating, frustrating and overall difficult to deal with.
