Anatomy of Lower Back Pain

The spinal column is made up of 33 bones called vertebrae with discs that act as shock absorbers in between. The lower back muscles and spinal column are important to spinal cord protection, stability, balance, weight distribution and static postures. Lower back muscles and other soft tissues enable and limit movements such as flexion, extension, side bending, rotation, or a combination.

The lower back spinal column consists of small bones vertebrae that surround and protect the spinal cord, discs, nerve roots and internal organs. Lower back muscles and ligaments are responsible for connecting and protecting the vertebrae and discs. Between each vertebra is a 'disc'. The disc is made of strong spongy, rubber-like tissue, which allows the spinal column to be flexible. Strong ligaments also attach to adjacent vertebrae and disc to give extra support and strength to the spine and spinal cord. The various muscles that are attached to the spine enable the spine to bend and move in various ways.

Nerves from the spinal cord come out from between the vertebrae disc and go to various parts of the body e.g. Sciatic nerve to legs.
