My Own Back

So, I hurt my own back a few days ago due to prolong standing in a wrong way at work coupled with teaching my son how to bike, again, in bent position. I finally feel better today. I did therapies and exercises on myself and took no medication. Last time I took an Advil which masked the pain and I really hurt my back.

So now I use a stool for very treatment I render. People with back pain should also do the same when brushing teeth, washing dishes or what have you.  A little stool can go a long way….
