The spine is truly an amazing part of the human body. The spinal column is made up of a number of vertebrae and those vertebrae are separated by spongelike material, known as the intervertebral disc. It carries the spinal column and nerves branch out from the spinal cord to various areas of the body. Those nerves transmit signals to and from those parts of the body, allowing for the voluntary and involuntary movements that we all experience. Those nerves also transmit pain and at times, issues may result in chronic back pain and a difficulty with leading a comfortable day-to-day life.
If you are dealing with pain, it can be a result of any number of different issues. At times, one of the vertebrae may be resting against the nerves in the area, such as what would occur during degenerative disc disease or if you have a herniated disc. Sciatica is also a common problem, leading to lower back pain and pain in the legs. This is a result of the sciatic nerve being pinched or damaged and it certainly can result in chronic pain that is difficult to handle.
