What is it?
Axial neck and back pain is an over-all broad topic. However, it refers to pain in or around the cervical spine, neck, or back. According to Principles of Orthopedic Practice for Primary Care Providers, over 80% of all adults will experience neck or back pain chronic enough to impair daily function.
Although it is neck or back pain, axial pain can cause side effects such as headaches, shoulder pain, and stiffness in the neck or back. Symptoms can also include muscle spasms, irritability, and pain stemming from the source.
Because axial neck and back pain is such broad subject, it takes a trained physician to correctly diagnose the pain one is experiencing. Treatment can range from conservative, to minimally invasive procedures.
