The Human Back

The human back is a large, complex structure composed of bone, muscle, tendons, ligaments, nerves, and blood vessels descending from the back of the neck and shoulders to the top of the buttocks. Its intricate anatomy provides support and flexibility for the head and torso; protection for our internal organs; allows movement of the head, torso, arms, and legs; and most important, serves as the home for the spinal column.

The Spine

The spine – also known as the vertebral column or spinal column – is comprised of 26 bones: 24 separate vertebrae interspaced with cartilage (commonly known as discs), the sacrum (a large, triangular bone at the base of the spine) and the coccyx (more commonly known as the tailbone). Click here for more information.

Back Pain

The human back is complex system of interconnecting nerves, bones, muscles, ligaments, and tendons, all of which can be a source of pain. Medical research studies consistently rate back pain as the second most common type of pain in adults (headaches typically rank first). While muscle strain is the most common cause of back pain, a more serious condition, often chronic in nature, is caused by herniated/ruptured lumbar discs. A herniated disc often requires medical treatment, and they can be extremely painful. Click here for more information.
