Causes of Back and Neck Pain

Studies show that about 1 in every 5 Singaporeans1 suffer from back pain and neck pain, and you have some 80% chance of suffering from back pain and neck pain sometime during your lifetime.

Common causes of back and neck pain include:

  • Straining the muscles or ligaments
  • Pressure on the inter-vertebral discs
  • Nerve compression or entrapment
  • Damage to the vertebra (spine).

Back pain and neck pain may either occur suddenly or over time due to repetitive strain. The same survey found that about 1 in 10 Singaporeans suffer attacks of pain once a month or more frequently. In most cases, nothing abnormal shows up in tests such as X-rays and there is no permanent damage.

Pain is a complex symptom that affects us both physically and mentally. Your response is as individual as you are. (See “Pain Layers“)

Find out how physiotherapy techniques such as manual therapy and core stability training helps to relieve and assist in the prevention of back and neck pain.
