Back Pain

I figured since so many people suffer from one kind of back pain or another, I'd post some links to some quality information on back pain--overviews, treatment, and prevention.

Low Back Pain Fact Sheet (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke)

What Is Back Pain? (National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases)

Low Back Pain (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons) this site has some great illustrations

Back Pain (Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research)

Back Exercises Interactive Tutorial (Patient Education Institute)

Back Pain Prevention (North American Spine Society)

Prevent Back Pain (Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion)

Low Back Pain Exercise Guide (American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons)
This guide can help you better understand your exercise and activity program, which should be supervised by your therapist and orthopaedic surgeon.
