Back and neck pain can occur as a result of a specific injury or as a result of altered load on joints or soft tissues due to postural adaptations related to another problem or undesirable habit.
Specific injuries can occur when joints and soft tissues are overstretched or placed under excessive load e.g. when lifting and twisting in awkward positions without adequate deep muscle support.
Early assessment and attention to the contributing factors prevents compensatory postures which then place other structures under load or give rise to muscle imbalances that may lead to longer term discomfort.
