Low Back Pain

According to the National Institutes of Health, about 80% of the population develops back problems at some time in their lives. Since many of us will cry out, "Oh my aching back!" at one time or another, I thought I'd provide some links to some helpful information on the prevention and treatment of low back pain.

Low Back Pain: Tips on Pain Relief and Prevention (American Academy of Family Physicians) - This is an excellent resource.

Low Back Pain Fact Sheet from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke

Back Exercises an interactive tutorial (Patient Education Institute)
