Questions and Answers
Q: In your experience, what is the
most common cause of back injuries or problems?
With few exceptions, most back disorders are the
accumulation of months or even years of poor posture,
faulty body mechanics, stressful living and working
habits, loss of flexibility and a general lack of
physical fitness. In fact, by middle age, almost everyone
has felt some form of back pain. Further, statistics
show that a person who had had a backache is ten times
more likely to have another one. That's why for most
people, the key for managing back problems is a treatment
program that includes a healthy dose of general fitness
conditioning as well as a practical, effective education
program to prevent re-injury.
