Back & Neck Education
It is very important for the patient to understand how their back and neck work. Usually back and neck pain, are the result of an accumulation of months or even years of:
Using faulty Body Mechanics
Stressful living and working habits
Poor mattresses, pillows and poor sleeping habits
Loss of flexibility
Decline of physical fitness.
The key point to make is each of these common causes is under your control. At Therapeutic Systems we try to educate the patient regarding the anatomy of their spine, how their back works, ergonomics, how stress may be contributing to their symptoms, how to use their spine and what it will take to regain strength, vitality, and a more pain-free status.
