Back and neck pain is common and there are many reasons why it occurs. It might be that you’ve lifted something incorrectly, bent awkwardly, you’ve poor posture, you’re suffering from injury (whiplash, a fracture), or you may have a disease or age related condition (arthritis, degeneration). Most often back and neck pain will disappear on its own but sometimes it continues for six weeks or more.

Your lifestyle may be contributing to your pain and by making changes your pain could be relieved.
