Believe it or not, a pain in the rear is often caused by problems with the feet!  The average person walks approximately 2000 miles per year.  That’s a lot of foot-mileage!  Your feet support the weight of your entire body and the way the contact the ground directly affects how your back absorbs compression of the spine. It’s little wonder that people develop conditions in their feet and that the end result is back pain. Flat foot is an example of a foot condition that can cause pain to the lower back.

Osteoarthritis is a plague to athletes.   Wear and tear on joints over time, and the resulting breakdown of joint cartilage means many athletes are prone to it.

Theatre is a wonderful form of entertainment and depends on performing artists who are highly dedicated to their craft to create the magic so often found there.  The industry, however, is highly competitive and extremely demanding of performers. When people think of athletes they may picture football, tennis or basketball players or long distance runners.  But like other athletes, dancers and musicians also experience injury and develop conditions as a result of their trade. Professional musicians and dancers face common injuries like tendinitis, sprains, muscle strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, neck and back pain, and other orthopedic, neurologic and musculoskeletal conditions. Think about the repetitive nature of practice and performance for string musicians, pianists and wind instrument players. It’s little wonder they often suffer from conditions…
