Problems can arise both from the mechanical aspects of the spine (the spinal column) and the neurological aspects (the spinal cord and spinal nerves).  Due to the intricate structure of the spine, resultant problems can be interrelated and give rise to both mechanical and neurological symptoms.  Undoubtedly, the most common cause of spinal problems relates to degenerative wear and tear within the spinal column.  In its simplest form, this results in mechanical spinal pain but when it impacts on nerve function, further problems can result in the arms or legs.
