What Is A Spinal Condition?
Your spine is a column made up of many interconnected bones called vertebrae. These are associated anatomically and functionally to one another via joints and then nearby nerves, discs, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Each vertebrae has an opening that allows for the spinal cord to pass through. This forms the spinal canal. It’s a complex and important piece of you that can be the source of many different types of injuries and conditions.
Really, a “spinal condition” is an umbrella term that could cover a range of things – from mechanical pain to spinal stenosis to spinal disc displacement.
But unfortunately, any form of spinal condition can often be debilitating – causing you to lose your range of motion and functional movement, leaving you unable to do the things you love.
