Recognize the Risk Factors for Back Pain
A spinal column consists of two parts, namely the anterior part which consists of the bony bodies or vertebral bodies, and the posterior part which consists of the vertebral arches.
The spine serves as the main support for the body so that humans can stand straight, bend over, and stretch. The spine is also responsible for protecting the spinal canal and cord.

What type of bone examination tool is needed?
By doing this examination, the doctor shows the condition of the spine. So that it will be seen the part that has a fracture and how severe the level of interference is.
Apart from showing soft tissue such as nerves, an examination using a CT scan shows the condition of your spine. With a CT scan, the doctor or medical team will show a cross-section of the spine. In addition, doctors see the spine from more than one angle using a CT scan.
With an MRI exam, the doctor looks for intervertebral disc problems. These discs serve to protect the spine from loads and shocks.
