Back and neck pain can be caused by a number of circumstances, including an injury or fall, lifting heavy objects, or improper movements repeated over time. Back pain can feel mild, dull, achy, severe, or even disabling. It can limit mobility and make normal functions difficult. 

Neck pain is different from back pain in that it occurs in the cervical vertebrae in your neck, versus lower down into the back. The neck is often left unprotected and subject to injury due to its mobility and lack of protection. Acute pain in your back or neck means it comes on suddenly, intensely, and without warning. Chronic pain, however, can last for weeks, months, or even years and is usually continuous.


Finding the exact cause of back pain and neck pain can be hard to determine. There are many different causes, from overuse to degeneration to sprains and strains, and sometimes more serious ailments such as a tumor or growth.
