Anatomy Bootcamp - An Introduction to the Clinical Anatomy of The Back

  • An amazon worker lifted a heavy box at work and suddenly felt severe pain in her low back and down her leg. She was diagnosed with a herniated disc in her lumbar spine. How did an injury to her back cause pain in her leg?
  • A star collegiate football player charged head first into his opponent’s gut and they both fell to the ground. When the trainer got to the side of the charging player, he was conscious but was unable to move. What caused his paralysis?
