Back, neck and spine pain are something that many of us have come to believe we just have to live with. At Central Indiana Orthopedics, we work to eliminate those chronic issues so that you can live pain-free.
The majority of back pain symptoms stem from inflammation due to an acute injury or overuse of the muscles, joints or tendons. Pain can also be caused by chronic or degenerative conditions, such as arthritis.
With so many of us spending our days in front of computer screens or looking down at our phones, neck pain is more common than ever. However, chronic neck pain needs to be evaluated before it can cause further damage.
The spine is a highly complex and critical component of the human body. Since spine injuries can affect virtually any body part, there is a wide range of conditions and injuries encompassed by spine pain, represented by a wide range of symptoms. (If associated with incontinence, go to the emergency room.)
Spine conditions and injuries should be examined by an orthopedic spine specialist for prompt and proper diagnosis.
