Types of Back Pain
Your spine is comprised of vertebrae, a series of small bones that are stacked on top of each other. They are attached by ligaments, tendons, and muscles. Vertebrae are separated by shock absorbers called intervertebral discs. Back pain is typically classified by regions of spine. At the top of the spine is the cervical (neck) region. In the middle is the thoracic region of the spine. At the bottom is the lumbar region of the spine and this is where most back pain exists. Since it is so prevalent, it is very hard to diagnose and treat.
