Back Pain

Back pain is a common injury that can cause great pain and can interfere with the daily functions of your life. Prior to the sudden onset of a back injury there is generally a pre-existing weakness within the internal structure of the spine. This weakness will then become vulnerable, triggering pain by lifting a heavy object, a sudden, quick movement, or sitting in a position for too long of a period.
