CHRONIC BACK PAIN

For some of us, pain is constant and we put up with it without thinking about treatment. Chronic back pain can be caused by many activities such as; lifting, twisting, sleeping posture, trauma and many more. Unfortunately, pain has a detrimental affect on our quality of life and disables us from normal range of motion or mobility and other activities of daily living. You shouldn’t be living with back pain for months to years, now is your time to seek treatment!

**Chronic pain is defined as pain that persists for months to years.**

WHERE IS YOUR BACK PAIN?

CHRONIC NECK PAIN (CERVICAL)

Common cause of Neck Pain-Chronic Neck Pain is often caused from long-term postural issues that stem from extended hours in a seated position. Sitting at a desk, computer or in a car for many hours in a day causes a forward head position which places greater stress on the musculature surrounding the neck, as well as musculatures the mid back, chest and shoulder regions.

Common signs and symptoms of Neck Pain – Chronic Neck pain is often seen in patients with a forward head position and/or forward rounded shoulders. This is called Proximal Crossed Syndrome (PCS). Symptoms of this include: Neck and Mid back Stiffness, Neck pain, Decreased Neck range of motion, Hypertonicity (tightness) of muscles in the Neck and Shoulder Regions, Headaches and Migraines.
