How Common is Low-Back Pain?

Here is an interesting article I just saw this morning.  Basically, it’s saying that 8/10 people have back pain in their lives.  That’s a whole lot of people.  Some of it has to do with sedentary lifestyles, but a lot has to do with the fact that we do a lot of activities that our bodies just weren’t created for — like sitting, computers, driving, walking in shoes.  Over time, all of this adds up and can create stress.

Of course, I recommend Rolfing or other similar body work things, but even simple activities likes stretching and getting your body up and moving can be a great help.
