Hello and welcome.

Yes, any problems with any part of the spine can and usually does affect other parts of the spine. Since the vertebrae are all connected an injury or degenerative condition in the neck can definitely affect other parts of the back.

Please read through the Tip at the top of this WebMD Back Pain Community that lists the steps for getting back pain diagnosed and treated. Here is a link to that tip: http://forums.webmd.com/3/back-pain-exchange/tip/18

I pray you can find answers, the right treatment and relief soon.
