Spine is made up of 26 bone discs called vertebrae. Protected deep inside the bones, the spinal cord connects your body to the brain, allowing movement of your arms and legs. Strong muscles and bones, flexible tendons and ligaments, and sensitive nerves contribute to a healthy spine. The spinal column provides the main support for your body, allowing you to stand upright, bend, and twist. Ligaments and muscles connect the bones together and keep them aligned. They include Infections, Injuries, Tumors, Ankylosing spondylitis, scoliosis, spinal stenosis and herniated disks. Spinal diseases often cause pain when bone changes put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. They can also limit movement. Treatments differ by disease, but sometimes they include back braces and surgery.
