Pain in the BACK

It is one of those unpleasant ironies – being physically active can create pain. I am not talking about DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness). I am talking about back pain that won't quit. Many professional athletes and weekend warriors alike suffer from chronic back pain. Here's a little quiz to help you avoid or resolve some of those aches and pains

I would have thought that a perfect golf swing wouldn't aggravate your back, but I guess not. I'm so clueless about golf anyways :P I did get the running question right...yay for running!

My lower back pain is SO GREAT during PMS (like now) that I can't sit or sleep comfortably, and i can't stand up straight after sitting for long, and working out is next to impossible b/c it feels like I actually pulled all the muscles. I can't wait till this one is over. It is worse this month than normal. :-( :rant:

hmm...i thought running jarred your joints and vertebre and that isnt good...guess i was really I got a big fat 0. I figured the golf question was a trick one...why would someone play a sport that if done correctly could injure you? So dumb.
