Your spine is more than just a structural support that lets you stand upright and move, it’s also a protective conduit for your nerves. Spinal problems don’t just cause backaches and neck pain, they also interfere with nerve signals, which can result in problems throughout the body.
Problems with the spine are so common that nearly everyone experiences them at some point in their life. For starters, about 80% of the population will experience back pain, and the older you get, the more likely back pain becomes. Back pain can be caused by structural imbalances due to poor posture, excess weight and a lack of physical fitness. Back injuries, herniated disks, and osteoarthritis are also common causes.
Neck pain and shoulder pain, headaches, sciatic nerve pain, numbness and tingling in the extremities and numerous other symptoms can also be traced to the health of the spine. Plus, we emotionally associate a healthy spine with courage, fortitude and uprightness or integrity.
