July 9, 2010, Newsletter Issue #226: The painful truth

Tip of the Week

Your back is a fairly complex system of vertebrae, disks, muscles, ligaments, nerves and other stuff. According to back specialists, there are more than 24 different areas of the back that can be injured. Statistics show that between 60% and 80% of the general public will experience back pain, ranging from minor muscle strains to herniated disks. The majority of back injuries are preventable. Many people hurt their backs while leaning over to pick up something light like a newspaper or a pencil. It's not the weight of these objects that throws out the back, but the thousands of times over the years that these things were lifted incorrectly. Eventually,the back just can't take it anymore. That's why a lower or brace alone can be at best only a partial solution.
