Spine (Back and Neck) Pain and Problems

The spinal column is the body’s main support structure. It provides structural integrity for your body from your lower back to your neck. It enables you to stand upright, bend, and twist, while also protecting your spinal cord from injury. It is comprised of a mix of of muscles and bones, flexible tendons and ligaments, and sensitive nerves that under normal conditions, contribute to a healthy spine.
