The spine is a complex structure of the human body that contains 26 bones or vertebrae. These support the spinal cord which in turn supports the whole body allowing for various movements, postures and positions. Injuries, work and life pressures, complex lifestyle, uneven movements and sudden jerks and wrong positions can all contribute to the disorders of the spine. Some of them can be sudden while others can develop slowly over a while. Inflammations, Infections, genetic conditions, and normal age-related wear and tear could also be the causes of these disorders.
