According to Dr. Michael Roizen, about 65,000,000 people suffer from back pain. He also says that you are likely to have a serious episode with your back once every 15 years of your life. Strangely, that's the same schedule that divorce runs on for some people. A coincidence? I think not! It's rather hard to be chipper and happy when your back is cranky!
