What is spine? 

Vertebral column or backbone or spine consists of 33 bones; called as vertebrae. Lower 9 are fused in adults. 

  1. Cervical spine in neck region: 7 vertebrae (C1-C7)
  2. Thoracic Spine in upper back: 12 vertebrae (T1-T12)
  3. Lumbar spine in lower back: 5 vertebra (L1-L5)
  4. Sacrum in Lower back Fused: 5 vertebrae (S1-S5)
  5. Coccyx (tailbone) fused: 3-5 vertebrae. 

Significance of Vertebral column:

  1. The major function of vertebral column is protection of spinal cord. 
  2. It provides stiffening for the body and attachments for muscles. 
  3. It transmits body weight while walking and standing.

There are 3 specific movements that are responsible for back injuries. Bending, lifting and twisting. The danger lies in performing any two or more if them simultaneously.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to have a persistent back pain as a health issue. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

I am 32 year old I had injury at paella bone 2 days back. Xray was normal. Still I have knee pain. What to do?
althought the xray is normal the pain would be due to damage to the underlying cartilage which will not be seen on a xray. Ice, rest and elevation helps. once the acute pain subsides you have to do quadriceps strengthening exercises.
