The spine is an extremely important and complex structure that consists of bones called vertebrae; providing support for the entire body and keeping us upright.
The spine is divided up into three sections: cervical spine (neck), thoracic spine (rib area) and lumbar spine (lower back).
Each section is unfortunately susceptible to injury; acute or chronic (wear and tear, poor posture, overuse or repetitive motions).
Each vertebra is protected by ‘shock absorbers’ known as discs that gives your spine its movement and flexibility, yet very commonly injured.
