What is the spine
The spine is a complicated array of bones, muscles ligaments and tendons. It enables us to stand upright, absorbs shock and allows us to bend and twist. The spine also houses the spinal cord. This contains the central nervous system that allows the brain to communicate with every tissue, organ and cell within the body. If the spine becomes misaligned due to a variety of stresses, the communication from the brain to the body is interrupted, and we can suffer from health problems.
Most people don’t consider their back or spine on a daily basis. However, they soon realise how important it is when they develop back pain.
Back pain has a considerable cost. 3.8 million work days were lost last year due to back pain, plus there are the psychosocial problems that arise from long-term back pain.
Unfortunately, approximately 80-90% of us will suffer from spinal pain at some point. If you are overweight or obese, smoke, lift heavy objects or had previous back pain, you are more likely to suffer.
We’ve searched the web for the best advice on keeping your back fit and healthy.
