The spine is a complex structure that interacts with the entire neuromuscular system. It allows for fluid and stable movement of the body. Unfortunately, significant back and neck pain is one of the most common and debilitating musculoskeletal problems, and has become a major health problem of the modern era. According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, 80 percent of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lives.
