Christopher Freytag, D.C., spoke about the different causes of back and neck pain.
Dr. Freytag stated that Mechanical Back Pain includes the muscles, joints, ligaments and discs. Imbalances in the body are caused by repetive stress, incorrect movement and fixed postures. He demonstrated a few stretches and made some recommendations on how to prevent imbalances in our body. He also pointed out the it is important to use ice for back pain.... heat increases inflammation and cause an increase in pain. Remember balance in our structure is the key to reduce injury and pain.
