Neck pain and back pain are common conditions like sciatica or bulging disc that can cause discomfort and affect your daily life. The neck is the upper part of your spine, located in the area between your head and shoulders, while the back includes the middle and lower parts of your spine. Neck and back pain can have a significant impact on people's lives, both physically and emotionally. Chronic pain can cause limited mobility, poor sleep, emotional distress such as anxiety and depression, and decreased participation in activities you once enjoyed. Workplace productivity can also be affected, causing missed days of work, decreased productivity, and increased healthcare costs. Seeking medical attention early on can lead to better outcomes and improved quality of life. A healthcare professional can work with you to identify the underlying cause of your pain and develop a treatment plan that addresses your specific needs and goals, helping you to regain your mobility, improve your sleep, and reduce your pain.
