These Activities can Lead to Back and Neck Pain

back and neck painDo you often wonder why so many people suffer from back and neck pain? While the cause varies, some activities are more dangerous than others.

No matter who you are or how you like to live your life, it’s a good idea to understand the importance of maintaining a high level of back and neck health.

Here are a few activities that can cause you pain:

·      Too much yard work. The summer months are a great time to work in the yard, but you don’t want to go overboard. Lifting heavy bags, pushing a lawnmower, and gardening can all lead to an injury that could put you on the shelf.

·      Heavy lifting. Depending on your job, this may be a way of life. While there is nothing wrong with that, here’s something to remember: you need to learn proper lifting technique. You should also use safety equipment when possible.

·      Running. While this tends to have the most impact on the legs, your back and neck could suffer at some point as well.

If any one of these activities is causing you back and/or neck pain, it’s imperative to seek immediate medical attention. This is the only way to understand what is going on and how to address the problem once and for all.
