About Back Pain and Neck Pain
Back pain and neck pain are common concerns, but most causes of neck and back pain aren’t serious. Neck and back problems can be caused by your muscles being strained from poor posture – whether it’s leaning into your computer at work, hunching over your workbench doing hobbies or lifting everyday items.
But sometimes back pain and neck pain is caused by more serious conditions. To help identify the cause of your neck and/or back pain, we ask you to complete a health questionnaire. Your answers provide your doctor with detailed information about your pain and ability to function. This information also tells the back specialist how severe your symptoms are and what neck or back pain treatment will be most helpful.
