Your body has about 206 skeletal bones, which vary in length, thickness, and shape. In these bones are your red blood cells, bone marrow, phosphorus, calcium, and magnesium. Magnesium is the silvery white metallic element that works with calcium to provide the necessary support to your bones and muscles in order to protect your internal organs and facilitate movement.

Your skeletal muscles provide you with the necessary support for all kinds of movement, including sitting, standing, and walking. These muscles also support your posture. They expand, contract, lengthen, and shorten in accordance to your every move. When your muscles contract, they stimulate your muscle fibre, which feeds off of your motor neurons or nerve cells. These thread-like nerve cells transmit impulses outwardly and make up your nerves. Another component, the dendrites, transmits these nerve impulses to the other areas of your body. All these components make up your Central Nerve System and when their transmissions and processes are interrupted in any way, major problems can arise.

Just like your Central Nerve System, your muscles can act as transmitters as well, since they transmit energy throughout your body. Some forms of energy that your muscles transmit are known as Adenosine Triphosphate or ATP. This form of energy is a major component of your RNA, which plays a vital part in your metabolic structure. Other forms of energy transmitted by your muscles are Adenosine Diphosphate (ADP) and hydrolysis. Hydrolysis is particularly important because it involves reactions that occur with your body fluids.

The contraction of your muscles also leads to the breaking down of the transmissions of your nerve impulses as well as the release of acetylcholine from the ends of your neuron fibres. These nerve impulses and white crystalline compounds (acetylcholine) are transmitted and released respectively with the participation of enzymes known as cholinesterase.

Enzymes are complex proteins that act as catalysts for producing living cells and promoting specific biochemical reactions. The enzymes present in your brain, blood, and heart acts to decompose acetylcholine and break it down to acetic acids and choline. This process suppresses the stimuli of acetylcholine and affects your nerves; it is sometimes referred to as acetyl-cholinesterase.

Each element and component outlined above makes up the major parts of your body whose normal functions, when disrupted in any way, can lead to back pain as well as other medical problems. For example, if your muscle tone fails to hold contractions and break down the transmission of your nerve impulses at any given time, then your muscles will become overexerted, thus resulting in back pain. That is why it is very important for you to properly keep your muscles toned and your bones strong so as to avoid back pain and other more serious medical conditions.
