back pain at any point in time, making back pain a main focus

workings of life. (1) Back pain is costly and quality
of life altering for many.
SPINAL STENOSIS AND WALKING
Walking is a such a day-to-day requirement. One
recent study described that back and neck pain were
positively and significantly associated with workplace absenteeism mostly triggered
by difficulty standing, sitting, and walking. (2) Walking is a vital
daily function! Back pain sufferers headed to surgery will do well to improve
their walking capacity before surgery. The greater the walking capacity
before surgery. The better the walking capacity after
surgery. Lumbar spinal stenosis as a core issue for back
