Anyone with back pain, whether acute or chronic, will tell you: when your back hurts, everything hurts. Considering the intricate nature of the spine and its interrelated components - vertebrae, discs, the spinal cord itself, nerves, muscles, tendons - that's easy to understand. What's not so easy for patients is finding specialized care.
