Your back consists of bones, discs, spinal nerves, tendons, ligaments, muscles and other soft tissue that work together to provide stability, support and smooth body movements. Any damage to these parts in your back can lead to incapacitating pain and reduced mobility. This affects your quality of life, since you can’t participate in your favorite sports or, in many cases, do other ordinary, everyday activities.
About 65 million Americans complain of back pain. Of these, 16 million suffer from chronic back pain. This is back pain that persists for 12 weeks or longer and affects your ability to live comfortably. The sensitivity of your back and the multiple functions it plays limit your mobility and flexibility. You require the attention of a chronic pain specialist who’s experienced with treating back pain.
