How your spine works
Your spine is a complex series of 33 bones divided into five sections along the spinal column from neck to pelvis: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacrum and coccyx. Each of these bones is called a vertebra. Discs separate the first 24 vertebrae, allowing this part of the spine to bend and flex. Nerves run from your brain through the spinal column and out to the rest of your body through openings between the vertebrae. The spinal cord protects these nerves. There are 31 pairs of spinal nerves that exit your spine and extend to different parts of your body where they control motion and sensation. If a vertebra or disc is damaged in any way, it can put pressure on those nerves and cause severe pain.
Because of the complexity of this system, back pain is not always easy to diagnose. It can be the result of an injury or surgery that affects the muscles, soft tissue, bones or skin in the area around your back. It can also be the result of damage to nerve tissue at a specific point along the spine.
