SPINE PAIN is the most common form of physical disability . Over 80 percent of all Americans will suffer from back and neck pain at some point in their lives.   Spine pain (back pain and neck pain) is the second leading cause of work absenteeism. Studies show that early aggressive treatment of back injuries by a physical medicine doctor results in quicker recovery and fewer lost work days.



Low back and neck pain symptoms range from a sharp and stabbing pain to a dull ache.  Radiating pain into the arm and leg most often is associated with numbness. Tingling  is alarming sign that the nerves is affected by spine condition such as spinal stenosis and disc herniation  . The pain can be constant or intermittent and positional.



Low back and neck pain can be acute or chronic. Acute low back pain and neck pain can appear suddenly after injury (e.g excessive exercise or heavy lifting). Strain injury is common  However, occasionally these  injury cause disc  rupture or herniation.
