Back and Neck Pain Q & A

What Are the Most Common Causes of Back and Neck Pain?

Back pain and neck pain are extremely common, affecting between 60% and 80% of the adult population in the United States, according to the National Institute of Health (NIH). Back pain most often affects the lower back and varies widely in intensity. The majority of back pain is caused by musculoskeletal issues, which include disc tears, muscle and ligament strains, and skeletal irregularities. Neck pain is often caused by poor posture from hunching over a computer, phone, or tablet as well as muscle strain, trauma, arthritis and other degenerative diseases. Pain in the back or neck can begin abruptly as the result of an accident or of lifting something heavy or develop gradually as the result of age-related changes or repetitive stress. Less often, back pain is the result of a disease or condition such as arthritis or fibromyalgia.
