Back pain is one of the most common health complaints by people throughout the world. The pain may be localized into four major segments of spinal column, such as:
1. cervical (neck area)
2. Thoracic (middle back)
3. Back (just above the buttocks),
4. sacral spine (down in to the buttocks area).
By far the most frequent location of back pain is lower spine, or lumbar (also named lumbago). Acute low back pain (lumbago) isnumber five most common reason behind visits to the Bowmanville chiropractor. But there is certainly another, potentially more serious, vertebrae problem, and that is scoliosis.
