The spine is one of the strongest and complex structures in the body, mostly due to the fact that it’s designed to protect spinal cord. Unfortunately, everyday movement can place a large amount of stress on the spine. This may happen either as a one-time event, such as a sports-related injury, or as a gradual weakening of the back. When this happens, back pain occurs. How Spinal Problems Occur Among the regions of the entire spinal column, the neck (cervical spine) and the lower back (lumbar spine) are the segments most vulnerable to wear and tear. This is because these areas often bear the most stress as we move throughout the day.
