A pimple like blister is formed when we apply too much pressure on any part of the body. The bony parts are more susceptible to pressures sores. Such pressure sores on the back are often mistaken for pimple on back by spine. The spine is a chain of ring like bones, which provide protection to the spinal cord running through them.
When a person sits or lies supine for too long a period, blood circulation is affected. There is less circulation of blood to the parts that are rested too long. In this case it is the spine. Added to the poor circulation is the constant pressure exerted by the bone on the cells that surround it. This leads to the death of the cells. Eventually, sores and what is called as pimple on back by spine are formed.
