The back can be sub-divided into upper (thoracic) and lower (lumbar) back. The bones in the back are to protect the delicate nerves and support your body weight.
Back pain is a common problem that afflicts some 80% of the adult population some time or other in their lives.
Many people may suffer from mild back pain from time to time, and their exact cause may be difficult to diagnose. In most cases, they are minor problems caused by a strain to the muscle or ligament.
When severe pain does occur, it may be the result of pressure on nerves from the misalignment of the bones in the back and warrants immediate medical attention.
