Back injuries result from damage, wear, or trauma to the bones, muscles, or other tissues of the back. Common back injuries include sprains and strains, herniated discs, and fractured vertebrae. The lumbar spine is often the site of back pain. The area is susceptible because of its flexibility and the amount of body weight it regularly bears.
Neck Rehabilitation differs from physical therapy in that it encompasses the entire range of treatment approaches for your neck pain. It includes the initial use of medication and rest to reduce pain, as well as fitness programs and posture lessons designed to keep the pain from coming back.
Physical therapy is the best treatment for chronic neck pain. Most physical therapy programs for neck pain involve applying treatments to reduce pain and/or stiffness enough to begin an exercise program of strengthening and stretching the neck. The specific methods and exercises used in physical therapy, as well as the duration of the treatment plan, can vary from person to person.
