Getting to know your back anatomy 101

When I ask people in clinic to point out where their back is I get a variety of responses starting from the neck, down to the pelvis and anywhere in between. To most the spine is a blurry picture of a structure that sits some where between our head and hips. If it is not painful … Read more
