Back Pain Q&A

What is the anatomy of the back?

At the heart of your back lies your spine, which is comprised of 33 vertebrae divided into five sections, including your:

  • Cervical spine, or neck
  • Thoracic spine, or mid-back
  • Lumbar spine, or lower back
  • Sacrum
  • Coccyx

Surrounding your spine are a host of connective tissues, including:

  • Tendons
  • Muscles
  • Ligaments
  • Discs

These components all come together to provide foundational support for your body, as well as mobility and range of motion.


What are the most common causes of back pain?

The most common causes of back pain include:

Degenerative disc disease and herniated discs

Your discs provide critical cushioning between your vertebrae, but if they break down, the disc can bulge out and irritate the highly sensitive nerve roots in the area.

Muscle strains

The muscles in your back are hardworking, which means they’re susceptible to strains if they’re pushed past their limits.

Spinal stenosis

The condition is a narrowing of your spinal canal, which can crowd and irritate your nerves.

Compression fractures

If you’re losing bone density, your vertebrae may collapse over time.

Osteoarthritis

If the facet joints in your back begin to degenerate because of arthritis, you can be left with pain that gets progressively worse.

Back pain most often strikes your lower back because this area is responsible for much of the range of motion in your body. That said, conditions like compression fractures typically affect your mid-back. No matter where your back pain originates, the team at Buckhead Injury Wellness Institute can help you find a solution.
