Why is the spine important?
Your spine is a vital part of your body, housing hundreds of nerves and helping the body to perform each and every movement. When the spine is injured, it can cause serious repercussions, including nerve damage, degenerative diseases, and paralysis. Less severe spine problems can include soreness in the back, disc herniation, or sciatica, which lead to chronic back pain. This is often the result of poor technique when participating in sports or due to a traumatic sports injury. In many cases of spinal damage or back pain, a spine doctor is needed to help recover and alleviate discomfort.
