There are of course a wide variety of spinal conditions—“back problems”——that can seriously affect your quality of life. Here you will discover information about both common and not-so-common conditions affecting the back and spine.

When it comes to back pain or even tingling in the extremities, there are many factors relating to spinal conditions that can be the culprit, no matter where in your back the pain is located. And of course every body is different, so symptoms of spinal abnormalities or injuries vary greatly from person to person.

It’s important to remember, however, that like almost all medical conditions, back pain is treatable. The first step on the road to recovery is to consult a specialist who can determine what exactly is causing your pain and what treatment options would best mitigate the problems.
