Back Pain

What is back pain?

Back pain refers to any discomfort along your spine, from the base of the neck to the tailbone. Your spine is a complex system of bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, and nerves. When any part of this system is damaged, injured, or strained, you can have back pain and discomfort.

Often, back injury or spinal damage causes referred pain and other symptoms to the extremities, neck, head, and buttocks. Isolating the cause of back pain and developing an effective treatment plan requires extensive knowledge and experience in orthopedic medicine.

The team of experts at High Line Rehab PT has over 25 years of combined experience in treating all types of muscle, joint, and bone disorders, including back pain.
