Retirement should be filled with daily adventures — whether that means taking pleasant walks around your neighborhood or sitting in the sunroom watching the birds visit your yard. A sore neck or aching back is sure to hinder your enjoyment of either, not to mention interfering with your daily routines like sleeping, cleaning, and driving.
The neck and back are comprised of a complicated structure of bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments. Sometimes the simplest of movements, such as standing up from a chair, sleeping on an unfamiliar mattress, or planting flowers in the garden can have unexpected, painful results.
Causes of Neck and Back Pain
It’s possible to strain neck and back muscles, sprain ligaments, rupture disks, and irritate joints, all of which can lead to lasting back pain. Poor posture, obesity, a sedentary lifestyle, arthritis, and psychological stress, among other factors, can also cause or complicate neck and back pain.
Living with neck and back pain is an unfortunate reality for many Americans. In fact, it’s the third most common reason for a visit to the doctor’s office. Experts estimate that up to 80 percent of people experience back pain at some time in their lives. Fortunately, most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic, meaning the pain is not caused by a serious condition — even if it is a consistent condition.
Most cases of neck pain are caused by rapid movements or falls, which results in the neck muscles tightening and contracting. In turn, that creates extreme muscle fatigue and results in pain and stiffness. Neck pain also becomes more common as we grow older. Degenerative disorders such as osteoarthritis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disease directly affect the neck and spine.
