Neck and back pain, fractures and dislocations are one of the most common reasons for disability insurance claims. Most of these neck and back conditions are caused by disorders of the spine. The most common causes include:
- Disk herniation
- Compression fracture
- Lumbar spinal stenosis
- Muscle strain
- Ligament sprain
Other uncommon causes can include Paget's disease of the bone, thoracic outlet syndrome, and temporomandibular joint syndrome.
