In a perfect world, there would be no back pain.
We could sit at our desks all day at work with no negative consequences.
We wouldn't have to worry about proper lifting techniques.
And our backs wouldn't get worse with age, making our golden years more enjoyable.
Unfortunately, our world isn't perfect. And back pain is very real.
If we sit at our desks for hours on end, we will most definitely suffer from it.
Lift with your back and not your legs, and you're in for a rough few days.
And, unfortunately, our backs break down as we get older because they are at the center of almost every movement.
