Thank you for being part of the AGE.FYI experience.

Back pain is the worse.  Your spine is a column of bones (vertebrae) held together by muscles, tendons and ligaments and cushioned by shock-absorbing disks.  A problem in any part of your spine can cause back pain. There are numerous back pains, causes and treatments.
Upper Back pain can occur because of trauma or sudden injury, or it can occur through strain or poor posture over time.
Lower Back pain is the most common back problem most commonly caused by improper lifting, along with lifting too much weight.
Very important when lifting from ground level, you should bend and use your knees... not your back!
