Back pain is an ongoing problem experienced by literally millions of people from all over the world and people have back issues not just because they are getting older, and many younger people experience back pain as well. Young people think that they are stronger than they really are and they have never really been taught about lifting techniques in their life so far. They end up lifting items that are much too heavy and they don’t use the correct procedures in order to move the item from one place to another. This results in lower back pain and muscular pain as well.
Statistics tell us that people miss the highest numbers of days from work because of back pain that they have experienced at their workplace. Even though health and safety rules are in place and employers try to do their best to keep their employees safe, it happens that people try to lift items when they really should be using the correct lifting equipment. They end up in a spine hospital getting necessary help and maybe even surgery. The following are just some of the most common spinal issues that people experience every single day.
Some people have been involved in what could be regarded as minor car accidents and yet they experience something that is called whiplash. Whiplash is when you strain your head and you will feel the pain in the muscles in your neck.
