Back pain: Most of the lower back is made up from muscles that attach to, and surround, the spine. The vertebrae are roughly circular and between each vertebra is a disc. The discs between the vertebrae are a combination of a strong fibrous outer layer and a softer, gel-like centre. http://patient.info/health/nonspecific-lower-back-pain-in-adults
