Course Description

If your back has been hurting, you’re definitely not alone. An estimated 31 million people in the U.S. are suffering from back pain at any given time. And we spend more than $50 billion dollars every year trying to get rid of it. More than one million back injuries occur in the workplace every year, making "bad backs" a major cause of days missed from work. That’s a lot of back pain, not to mention lost wages and productivity. But it doesn’t have to happen. To avoid back pain and injuries, we need to take a look at how the back is structured, how it works, the problems that can affect it...and what we can do to prevent them.
