The spine is the backbone which supports our body. It is made up of 33 interconnected vertebrae. It has the major function of protecting our spinal cord too. The vertebral column is part of the axial skeleton. The vertebrae are separated by intervertebral discs. Inside the vertebral column, there is a canal called ‘spinal canal’ in which the spinal cord is lodged and protected. The importance of spine is evident from this short description of spinal anatomy itself. So that numerous conditions that cause diseases or disabilities to the spine are in fact a spoiler of day to day activities. Spine-health is very much important in this context and particular care should be taken to protect the spine. Occupational and age-related damages to the spine are most common. Many other factors also contribute to the development of spinal diseases.

Degenerative disc disease

The intervertebral discs wear away leading to thinning of space between vertebrae and contact of two vertebral surfaces leading to pain, inflammation, pressure on nerve roots etc.

Intervertebral disc prolapse

This can be due to many causes like injury or bulging discs. This lead to compression of nerves or the spinal cord itself leading to painful symptoms and restriction of movements.

Spondylolisthesis

The misplaced conditions of one or more intervertebral discs lead to vertebral misalignment and subsequent painful manifestations.

Scoliosis and degenerative scoliosis

Sidewise curvature of the spine is called as scoliosis. The exact cause is not known. Hereditary incidence is also seen. Scoliosis can be caused by prolonged degeneration also.
