Our approach begins by dividing the back and spine into four distinct segments: the cervical or neck area, the thoracic or mid-back region, the lumbar or low back, and the sacrum and coccyx, which encompass the tailbone or seat area.request an appointment
- Vertebral Bones: These bones stack atop one another, providing essential protection for the spinal cord, both in the upper and mid-back regions, as well as the nerves within the low back.
- Intra-vertebral Discs: Functioning as cushions and shock absorbers, these discs create space for the spine while facilitating its mobility. They reside between the vertebrae.
- Spinal Cord: Originating from the base of the brain, the spinal cord traverses the spinal canal, extending down to the first lumbar spine area.
- Ligaments: Robust, flexible fibers of connective tissue that anchor the vertebral bodies in position.
- Muscles: These muscles possess the capacity to exert influence on the spine, allowing for various movements, including bending, extending, flexing, side-to-side motion, and twisting.
- Tendons: Serving as connectors between muscles and bone.
Injuries to any of these structures can give rise to low back pain, mid-back pain, or neck pain, necessitating a comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment.
