There are various mechanisms for the production and existence of back pain, including poor posture, which can place undue stress upon your spine.
Your head is have and balanced on a narrow support made up of seven bones called the vertebrae. The vertebrae are separated from each other by discs, stabilized by joints and ligaments and moved by muscle. Because the neck is so mobile, it is easily damaged. Injury and postural problems are the most common cause of neck pain.
Acute knee injuries can arise from sudden trauma, such as an awkward fall, collision or twist of the joint.
Overuse injuries result from continuous activity or overload, such as running, jumping, cycling, weight training or bushwalking.
The ankle joint is made up of four bones shaped to make the joint stable. Increased stability of the joint is provided by ligaments, which are bands of strong, fibrous tissue that guide movement and prevent the joint from moving too much.
