Anyone who has ever suffered the misery of back pain knows how urgent it is to get relief. Once
you are free from the pain, most people will learn as much as they can about their sore back to
try to prevent back problems from arising again.
Back pain can vary from person to person, type to type, and region to region, such as the upper,
middle and lower back. It can be a dull, constant ache or sudden sharp pain like a dagger that

column extends from the base of our skull all the way down to the tailbone at our pelvis, the
coccyx. The many vertebrae that make up the spine are labeled in terms of area, and each is
