Neck and Back Pain

Neck Pain Treatment Fort Lauderdale

Your neck constitutes the cervical spine which is made up of vertebrae. The vertebrae are separated by discs. The other structures include muscles, nerves, tendons, and ligaments. In case of cervical degeneration, cervical disc herniation, cervical spine stenosis, muscle strain, arthritis, or trauma, you may feel neck pain in any of the structures. About 15% of U.S. adults have neck pain in the course of 3 months.

Experts say that back pain is so common that up to 80% of the population suffers back pain at some point in their lives. It can range from simple and bearable pain to sudden and extreme pain. In the majority of cases, back pain is a symptom of an underlying medical condition.
