The most common type of injury to the back or neck is to the soft tissue – the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Most of these soft tissue injuries heal well, and this is why most people with back injuries recover.
Back and neck pain is often an unseen injury to others. As such, it is sometimes difficult to understand the problems that a person with a spine injury has to live with daily. To help yourself, it is important to keep as mobile as possible and learn how to move your body to prevent strain on your back.
