Stress Related Back & Neck Pain

Have you ever been so stressed out that you physically feel pain in your neck, shoulders, or back? If you answered yes, according to the American Institute of Stress you are part of the 77% of the US population that regularly experiences physical pain due to stress.
Stress-related back, neck, or shoulder pain will typically go away after a few days or when the stress-factor is eliminated. If it doesn’t, your risk increases for a more significant spinal injury.
Reducing stress is easier said than done. Try the following tips to reduce stress, and the physical effects of stress, in your life:

For the entirety of 2017, I suffered from a herniated disc at L4-L5 which gave me excruciating pain in the calves and buttocks. Dr. Rudin recommended laminectomy and spinal fusion. He looked very confident and answered all the questions I had. He also fully assured me that I would be able to return to all my activities and resume a normal life. The surgery took place and I was walking the same day in the hospital corridors. I have been pain-free ever since. Thank you, Dr. Rudin.
