Low Back Pain
Almost everyone will experience low back pain at some point in their lives. This pain can vary from mild to severe. It can be short-lived or long-lasting. However it happens, low back pain can make many everyday activities difficult to do.
Your spine is made up of small bones, called vertebrae, which are stacked on top of one another. Muscles, ligaments, nerves, and intervertebral disks are additional parts of your spine.
The muscles and ligaments help stabilize the bones while the intervertebral disks provide “cushioning” to the spine so it can tolerate various movements and stress you place on your spine. The nerves that allow communication between your brain and your body are located inside the spine.
