Six ways to avoid back pain

Friday, July 12th, 2013

Ram is one of the healthiest guys I know. He eats well, runs regularly, and takes good care of himself in general. However, over the last three years, Ram has thrown out his back four or five times. Each time, he is crippled with pain that keeps him on the couch gulping pain killers like they were candy. It seems like every time he injures himself, Ram can’t remember doing anything strenuous. One time he was turning to reach for soap in the shower, and another, he was picking up a slip of paper from the floor—neither activities that would seem to trigger the kind of back pain he was experiencing.
