Pain or stifness in your neck, abdomen, and back can be debilitating, impeding your mobility and everyday activities. Neck and back pain injury symptoms include muscle tightness, weakness, or severe pressure; whereas, muscle spasms, feeling pain when you stretch, or stiffness and discomfort in the abdominal muscles are common complaints around abdominal pain. Treatment depends on the cause and levels of pain but may include strengthening exercises, rest, ice or heat applications, pain-relief patches, or wearing FUTURO™ Braces and Supports. They provide support on the affected parts and restrict painful movements, providing relief from symptoms. Other benefits and features include:
Otherwise known as cervical pain.
Poor posture, inflammation, injury, or age-related wear and tear are common causes of neck pain or stiffness. The neck is vital yet especially vulnerable to injuries that happen in the shower, stairs, car accidents, contact sports, heavy lifting, or whiplash (sudden jerking of the head), in which the neck muscles and ligaments are over-strained and forced to move outside of their position.
Otherwise known as pulled abdominal muscle or rectus abdominis muscle sprain.
An abdominal muscle strain occurs when there is a partial or full tear of the small muscle fibres in the abdomen. You may experience pain, swelling, and discomfort when you move, cough, laugh, breath, or sneeze. It’s commonly found in athletes that use strong rotational movements or sudden hyperextension of the spine, especially in baseball, softball, basketball, gymnastics, and track and field.
Spinal disc herniation occurs in your lower back (lumbar spine), when there is a lot of strain and pressure applied on the back muscles. Other than people who got into accidents and sports injuries, those who have physically demanding jobs that require heavy lifting and pulling have a higher risk of getting a herniated disc.
