Do your back pain symptoms change when bending the neck?

If you when bend your neck forward (or into flexion) and the pain worsens then this can indicate spinal cord tension (usually causes by the disc bulge compressing the nerve root). 

This can be relived by finding an appropriate neck posture that doesn’t cause pain. Nerve flossing, practising spinal hygiene and lying on the stomach are all part of the rehabilitation process. Common advice is to stretch the area but this can aggravate the condition further. 

As with many back problems it is always important to seek a professional who can help accurately diagnose the condition and give you the appropriate advice.

If you are currently in pain or wish to know more please get in contact.

Thanks for reading.
