This training teaches medical personnel about the parts of the back to help understand why there are injuries in different parts of the back. For example, chronic Back pain is often from a disc rupturing and often in the lumbar region and sometimes in other regions of the back. There are preventative measures one can take so this does not happen as often. One important factor is posture and neutral position.
