Causes of neck or back pain
Many things can cause neck or back pain. As you age, your spine slowly deteriorates. Most people, though, never experience symptoms of the age-related illness. Common back-related conditions include:
- Bulging disc
- Degenerative disc disease
- Spinal stenosis
- Herniated disc
If you think that you are experiencing one of these spinal conditions, schedule an appointment with your physician. He or she will work with you to formulate a recovery plan. Many back conditions resolve after a few weeks of conservative, non-surgical treatment.
How to prevent neck or back pain
Although you can’t prevent the natural wear and tear on your spine that comes with age, you can work to prevent an injury. One of the best things you can do for your spine is to develop a strong core. Even avid athletes such as runners struggle with maintaining strong core muscles. Consider incorporating yoga or Pilates into your daily exercise routine. Both forms of exercise are excellent in helping to strengthen core muscles.
