Neck & Back Pain

Figures show that approximately 1.5% of the European population suffers from chronic back pain and 50% of working adults in America claim to have a back injury which can lead to disa-bility in adults under 45 years of age.

The problem is much too extensive to be able to cover it in a short magazine article, but we can illustrate some instances just to explain what it may be about. Patients describe different pains in many different ways; just remember that the advice is that at all times they must be evaluated by their doctor.
 
Back pain caused by abdominal or pelvic problems, is usually due to the stretching of sensitive areas.
 
Pain with origin at the spine, which could be located in the back and neck.
Coughing and contractions can cause radical pain that radiates from the spine to the legs within the nerve root.
 
Muscle spasm pain, can be caused by posture problems.
One of the most common causes of back pain is a disease to the lumbar or sacral disks, which affects L4- L5 or L5-S1 area.

Although the causes of this disease are unknown, the rising number of sufferers of the disease is due to the increase in obesity within our society, as indivi-duals are becoming more and more overweight.
