If you experience chronic back pain and live in Dallas and the surrounding areas, the Comprehensive Spine Center of Dallas is here for you.
When you experience back pain, it’s your body’s natural reaction to signals transmitted from the pain source, which travel through the nerves in the spinal cord and up to the brain, where they are perceived as pain.
The back is one of our most important anatomic structures, providing support and facilitating mobility and balance for the entire body, as well as protecting the spinal cord. Because of the loads placed on it each and every day, it’s no surprise this well-designed structure, consisting of bones (vertebrae), discs, muscles, tendons, ligaments and nerves, is particularly susceptible to injury and other conditions that may have you reaching for the heating pad – or your doctor’s phone number.
The lumbar spine is made up of 5 motion segments. Each motion segment consists of 2 vertebral bodies separated by a lumbar disc, and a pair of lumbar facet joints.
The five vertebrae of the lumbar spine (L1-L5), located directly below the thoracic spine (mid-back) and are directly above the sacrum (tail bone), are separated by shock-absorbing intervertebral discs and supported by muscles and ligaments. These discs are very important for the normal mobility and function of your back.
Each disc is made up of two parts:
Posteriorly or behind the vertebral bodies and lumbar discs are a set of lumbar facet joints that function as true moveable joints. The facet joints are composed of two cartilage surfaces opposing each other surrounded by a strong ligamentous joint capsule. The facet joints are critical for lumbar motion.
