Sufferers of back or neck pain will know only too well the day to day struggles of living with back and neck pain. It is something that affects most people at some point in their lives. Although the pain is usually temporary, for some it becomes a debilitating condition that can affect your quality of life.

Symptoms of back and neck pain can include

  • stiffness in your neck or lower back

Back pain can take a number of forms and can affect anyone, at any age. Left untreated, the condition can worsen affecting your day to day life and potentially causing permanent damage to the spine.
