2011's Leaders are...

The International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons declared that the US performed over 1 million plastic surgery procedures in 2011. Brazil, China, and Japan also performed top numbers of cosmetic surgeries.

Low Back Pain

Low back is the portion between the upper and lower body and bears most of the body weight. It is therefore not surprising that a lot of us get low back pains.

The common causes of back pain include:

  • Injury
  • Disc herniation
  • Age
  • Compression fracture
  • Arthritis
  • Obesity
  • Lack of exercise
  • Depression

    Walking and maintaining good posture help with back pain. For more severe pain, a physical therapist may recommend specific exercises. Massage and acupuncture also help. Antidepressants aid in cases where back pain is due to depression. When these alternatives fail or when there is a structural deformity of the back or spine, surgery may be recommended.
