My aching back! Get to the root of your aches!
According to the National Institute of Health, back pain is the number two reason that Americans see their doctors, second only to colds and the flu! Back pain can be caused by many things. Common causes include muscle strains, arthritic conditions, and disc herniations. Less common causes include infections, fractures and tumors.
Please join Dr. Paul Maurer, as he explains the structure of the back, causes of pain and when more serious problems need to be addressed by medical professionals.
This presentation is held at the West Allis Public Library.
