EFFECTIVE MANAGEMENT & TREATMENT OF NECK &

LOW BACK PAIN

•Neck pain (cervicalgia) & Low back pain or lumbago are common musculoskeletal disorder affecting many people at some point in their lives.

• Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the neck and upper back, or pinching of the nerves emanating from the cervical vertebrae.

• Low Back Pain does not have a definitive cause. It is believed to stem from benign musculoskeletal problems such as muscle or soft tissues sprain or strains.

• If severe neck pain or low back pain occurs following an injury (motor vehicle accident, fall) a trained professional such as a paramedic or orthopaedician, should immobilize the patient to avoid the risk of further injury and possible paralysis.

• Most neck & low back pain can be safely and effectively treated following an examination by an orthopaedic surgeon and a prescribed period of activity modification and some medication to relieve the pain and diminish the inflammation.
