With 33 bones (vertebrae) that connect the back and neck to the spine, there are any number of conditions that can cause problems and pain.
The spine is divided into three sections. The cervical spine runs from the base of the skull to the upper chest, the thoracic spine from the upper chest the middle of the back and connecting to the rib cage and the lumbar spine in the lower back that supports the body.
Over the years, some of our bones and joints naturally wear down. However, you don’t have to live with discomfort and pain.
