Spinal TB: In the life of a runner, many times we ignore the pain of our body. Due to our busy lifestyle, our eating habits also become irregular. As a result, the body becomes the abode of disease. Many of us have back and neck pain. A lot of times we take this pain lightly and don’t do our full investigation, but a recent study found that ignoring neck and back pain can have detrimental effects on health. These can also be symptoms of TB in the spine.
