Almost every person will have to deal with neck or back pain at some point in their life. The cause can be something as straightforward as a muscle strain. Or there could be a deeper abnormality, such as a disc herniation or spinal stenosis. In this talk we will discuss how to differentiate between the different underlying causes. We will also address some common questions: When should someone be concerned about neck and back pain? When should someone seek a physician? What testing is expected? What treatments are available? What recovery time is expected?
The learner will be able to differentiate back pain as it relates to muscle strains and common injuries vs. back pain as it relates to a deeper abnormality, such as a disc herniation or spinal stenosis.
The learner will be able to identify the different underlying causes of back pain and when should someone be concerned about neck and back pain.
