Did you know cancer is responsible for 1 in 4 deaths in the United States? Or that cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S?
Your spine is a column of bones (vertebrae) held together by muscles, tendons and ligaments and cushioned by shock-absorbing disks. A problem in any part of your spine can cause back pain. There are three main areas of your back where pain can originate from: upper back, middle back and lower back. Upper and middle backache is less common since the bones in this area don’t flex or move as much as the bones in your lower back or neck. They work with the ribs to keep the back stable and help protect your vital organs, heart and lungs.
