Having back pain is relatively common and can occur at any time. However, it is a condition that can be treatable if appropriately managed. Causes of back pain could include sports-related injuries, improper lifting of heavy equipment, physical exertion, bad posture, or uncomfortable sleeping positions and can happen at any time. Back pain can also be associated with medical issues, such as osteoporosis, ruptured or herniated disc, or even sciatica. MCO's pain specialists are trained in all areas of interventional pain medicine and management techniques and are ready to help you live pain-free.
Neck pain can often result from poor posture, leaning towards something, sleeping in the wrong position, or even hunching over for too long. Neck discomfort can be attributed to a worn joint from overuse, muscle strains, or even neck compression issues. While these types of pain may not be serious, if you experience neck pain associated with pain shooting down your arm or numbness in your arms or hands, call a doctor immediately.
