Why Does My Back & Neck Hurt?
Pain is a symptom of the underlying mechanical problem. The vast majority of back, sciatica or neck pain is caused by poor mechanical movement of the spine. This occurs from poor posture, alignment, flexibility, coordination, and weak spinal muscles. Many people turn to over-the-counter medications, see their doctor for prescription medications, and even have expensive MRI’s and x-rays, without achieving any long-lasting results. These approaches focus on the symptom, not treating the root cause of the problem. As pain therapists, we get results, because we are the mechanics of the body, treating the root mechanical problems of spinal pain. In this book, we are going to teach you what we do to alleviate back pain, so you can help the health of your back and get back to the activities you enjoy.
Back pain is a mechanical problem and therefore, must be treated as such. Here are the main causes most back pain:
• Poor daily posture
• Lack of flexibility
• Poor spinal joint stability
• Inadequate core muscle strength • Lack of spinal coordination and balance
