Pictured here are just some of the problems associated with the spine. Any one of these problems from bulging discs, herniated discs and mis-aligned vertebrae can create pain of one sort or another. Some may require surgery. Others can be addressed by a chiropractor or a skilled massage therapist knowledgeable in body mechanics.
If you have any of these issues.The important thing is to have the problems worked on to create movement in the spine and restore hydration of synovial fluid and hyaluronic acid to the joint capsules. Otherwise, your back will stiffen up as a form of muscle guarding - the brain always sacrifices movement for stability.
