Spine is a column of 33 bones & provides mobility & stability in humans unlike the animals where it acts as a suspension bridge. Each vertebral segment functions through intervertebral discs, facets & ligaments that any abnormality (even poor musculature & posture) result in back pain.

There are two basic reasons why the lumbar region is so prone to injury & why so many millions of people suffer from back pain. The first reason concerns our discs. During the first 15 to 20 years of life, blood circulates through these tough, flexible shock absorbers that fit between the bones of our spine. During in those twenty years, the discs are in their prime. However, after early adulthood, the blood supply to the disc gradually stops. It becomes weaker & more vulnerable & if damaged, it heals slowly, if at all. The second reasons for back pain is bad habit of lifting & carrying & this lay tremendous stress on the lumbar discs.

But today stress filled life do not allow you to things properly & patiencely, somewhere in some way you slip and you feel a pain either in back or in some other joints. So you always need a treatment or remedy.
