Our back houses the majority of our spine, the central hub for all body functions. The upper, middle, and lower back consist of 17 vertebrae, cushioning discs, nerve roots, as well as muscles and ligaments that are responsible for supporting and moving the entire body. Nerves run through the narrow spinal canal, sending signals for a variety of bodily activity, like the movement of limbs, hormone release, and pain. One of the most complex areas of the body, the back is highly susceptible to a number of ailments, with over 90% of adults experiencing pain of some type in this area, in their lives.
