Depending on the cause, your neck and back pain may come and go or may last for weeks or months with little improvement.
Back and neck pain can manifest from a variety of causes. Sometimes, a specific event may trigger your pain, such as a fall or lifting an object that’s too heavy. Other times, the pain develops slowly over time and, one day, it becomes so significant that it impairs your daily activities.
Although many things can lead to acute neck and back pain, some of the most frequent causes of chronic spinal pain include:
Beyond these medical conditions, back and neck pain can result from injury or overuse, often caused by repetitive movements. Sleeping habits and stress can also contribute to spinal pain.
Dr. Singh determines how to treat your back and neck pain by addressing the underlying cause of your pain. He may opt for medications to reduce inflammation or pain, such as over-the-counter NSAIDs or corticosteroids.
He also advises patients to rest the spine from strenuous activities while still moving, as laying around can often make your back and neck pain worse. Hot and cold treatments, as well as massage and physical therapy, can also relieve your pain.
In severe cases, surgery may be necessary.
