Your neck is one of the most important structures in your body but is also one of the areas that’s most susceptible to muscle pain. Neck pain can turn a regular day into one you can hardly get through.
Lower back pain is a result of damage to one or more of the structures in your lumbar spine.
The spine consists of vertebrae, discs, muscles, and ligaments that form and support your spinal column. Running down the center of your spinal column is the spinal cord, from which nerves exit your spine to connect with the other parts of your body.
Arthritis is a painful condition that causes inflammation and stiffness in your joints. You can get arthritis in any joint in your body, including the shoulder, knee, hip, elbow, and ankle.
Over 100 different types of arthritis exist, but the two most commonly diagnosed types are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
Nerve damage doesn’t show up the same way in everyone. But potential signs and symptoms of neuropathy include temporary or permanent numbness; a tingling, prickling, or burning sensation; increased sensitivity to touch; pain; muscle weakness or wasting; paralysis; dysfunction in organs or glands; or impairment to urination and sexual function.
Many things can cause muscle pain (myalgia), including injuries, infections and diseases. Muscle pain can be short-term or chronic. Delayed-onset muscle soreness (DOMS) occurs after exercise. You can take steps to prevent and manage muscle pain and the conditions that cause it.
Sciatica refers to the symptoms that occur when your sciatic nerve is pinched at the base of your spine. It’s one of the most common types of lower back pain, and it can be highly disabling.
