While we are all aware on some level that our necks and backs are important to every movement we make, we don’t realize just how much it can impact your day if either of those body parts aren’t working the way they always used to. It isn’t until you have to deal with a stiff back or severe neck pain in that you really start to understand just how much you use these muscles throughout the day.
As you start to get older, you may realize that you seem to hurt yourself more and more while doing simple things while going about your day. Even getting into and out of bed or the shower can make you pull a muscle that puts you out of commission for the day. While it may be fun to lightly rib your friends if this happens to them, it is never truly funny when you’re the one in pain. It is also never funny when it is caused by something sudden like a car accident. It can cause severe problems when you try to do simple things like driving if you are unable to turn your head or body to look both ways before making a turn. This is when these types of injuries cross from being frustrating to being actively dangerous.
There are few things in life that are worse than being hurt, but when the pain is something that happens every day, it is an issue that needs to be resolved immediately. Being in constant pain can make you feel frustrated, depressed, anxious, and may lead to mental health issues as well as physical ones. We can definitely help you with any physical pain issues you are experiencing if you let us know you need help. The two are more linked than many people realize.
