Back, Neck & Spine Conditions
Back pain is one of the most widespread health problems, affecting four out of five Americans in their lifetime. The spine is an interdependent system of 34 vertebrae, more than 100 joints, 120 muscles, 23 discs, and more than 220 ligaments. When something goes wrong, the hundreds of nerve fibers and countless nerve endings are quick to alert you.
