Dear Ms. Keller, I am writing this letter to you to express my deepest gratitude and appreciation. I want to especially thank you for taking out the time, finding the patience, and being understanding. In a situation such as mine; at this present time; it really does help. Your help, kindness and extra effort is a blessing and a comfort. This has been a wonderful staff to work with for therapy.
Sincerely yours, Renard J.
As mentioned previously, nearly everyone has back pain sometime. Men and women are equally affected. It occurs most often between ages thirty (30) and fifty (50), due in part to the aging process but also as a result of sedentary life styles with too little (sometimes punctuated by too much) exercise. The risk of experiencing back pain from disc disease or spinal degeneration increases with age.
Back pain unrelated to injury or other known cause is unusual in pre-teen children. However, a backpack overloaded with school books and supplies can quickly strain the back and cause muscle fatigue (for more info, see our news section on Back to School).
