Your spine serves as your body’s central support system. It helps you sit, stand, walk, bend and twist, and it connects the different parts of the musculoskeletal system. Because it’s so crucial to mobility, strength and your overall health, when you have a condition or disorder that affects the spine, it can be debilitating.

Unfortunately, problems with the spine are common. In fact, back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide and experts estimate that up to 80% of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives. Yet, just because it’s common doesn’t make it any less frustrating to live with.
