Common Pain Areas & Symptoms

This is known as occipital headaches and commonly spans the back of the head to the top of the scalp. This is caused by muscle spasms and repeated trigger point pain leading to muscle fatigue.

This is neck pain which is made better by moving or positioning the neck and head in to a comfortable position. This is caused by wear affecting the joints or discs of the neck leading to muscle spasm.

This is pain which affects the trapezius muscle (the ‘trap’ muscle). This is caused by repeated strain of the muscle attachment to the spine and to the shoulder blade (scapula) leading to spasm.

This is pain between the shoulder blades. This can be a caused by muscle spasm around the shoulder or a ‘referred’ pain as a result of pressure on nerves due to disc disease in the neck.

This is pain at the top and side of the shoulder without pain inside the shoulder joint. This can be caused by pressure on nerves due to disc disease in the neck (C4 or C5 nerves).

This is pain affecting a certain part (dermatome) of the arm and can be associated with pins and needles or numbness. This is caused directly as a result of pressure of a specific nerve due to a disc prolapse in the neck.

This is pain which affects the muscles around the middle part of the spine. This is mainly caused by poor muscle imbalance and fatigue to due to poor posture but can also be caused by wear affecting the joints and discs of the thoracic spine.

This is back pain which can commonly span the middle part of the upper back to the top of the hips. This is caused by muscle spasms and trigger point pain which can be related to poor posture, core muscle weakness or wear affecting the joints and discs of the lumbar spine.

This is back pain related to wear and tear affecting the joints and discs of the lumbar spine. This can also be caused by inflammation affecting the ‘moving’ parts of the spine ie facet joints.

This is pain relating to painful ‘trigger point’ areas in the muscle or fascia (the ligamentous structure which envelopes the muscle) – sometimes known as ‘muscle knots’.

This is pain on the side of the lower back at the top the pelvic bone and can sometimes be on both sides of the spine. This can be caused by a tear in the disc with or without an associated disc prolapse of the lumbar spine.

This is pain at the top of the buttock which can sometimes extend to the back of the thigh. This is mainly caused by a disc bulge or prolapse causing pressure on specific nerves (L5 or S1) in the lumbar spine.

This is a very painful condition affecting a certain part (dermatome) of the leg and can be associated with pins and needles or numbness. This is caused directly as a result of pressure of a specific nerve due to a disc prolapse in the back.

This is pain affecting the tail bone of the spine known as the coccyx. This is mainly related to an injury (trauma), although in some circumstances can also be related to inflammation or tumours. Is common after pregnancy and delivery.

This is pain affecting the joint which connects the pelvis to the spinal column. It is a common site of pain due to inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid disease, ankylosing spondylitis etc.

This pain which radiates from the hip joint and can sometimes be confused with back pain.

This can be painless or painful. This due to damage affecting the nerves which supply the foot resulting in an inability to actively lift the foot up. This can be caused by a disc prolapse and can sometimes be permanent.

This is pain affecting the knee without pain inside the knee joint. This is caused directly as a result of a disc prolapse causing pressure on a specific nerve (L3) in the lumbar spine.
