Back Pain Conventional Wisdom Challenged

I hope everybody is having a great Friday, as another glorious weekend lies before us. If you've hurt your back recently though, this pronouncement may be like rubbing salt in the proverbial wound, as sufferers of back injuries must bear unspeakable pain when doing simple things like sitting down, and tying shoes (forget it, too excruciating!)

I came across an article on msn.ca this morning, challenging several pieces of back injury conventional wisdom. It's a fairly informative article, citing the results of several recent studies. As a result of reading this article, I have been inspired to dedicate time to the subject of low back pain, so next week, I will be focusing on back injuries, prevention and treatment.

Have a great weekend everybody!
