Managing Neck and Back Pain

Presented by:  Dr. John A. Buza, MD

– Neck and low back pain are very common, and the exact cause of pain is often difficult to determine, leading to frustration among patients suffering with this condition. 

– Understanding the anatomy and common causes of back pain can help to avoid future episodes of pain, and lead towards a healthier back. 

– It is important to know which signs and symptoms are more serious, so that you know when you or a loved one should see a specialist for further examination.
