Heal Your Aching Back

What a harvard doctor want you to know about finding relief & keeping your back strong

I’m talking about back pain, neck pain, and other regional pain problems involving the shoulders, hands and wrists, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. Some of these syndromes have specific terms such as bursitis and tendonitis; others have a confusing array of names. The common denominator is that these problems are painful, disabling, costly, highly prevalent—and woefully understudied. These musculoskeletal problems have been my passion since I started seeing patients as a rheumatologist in 1987 at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. Musculoskeletal problems have also been the focus of my clinical research.
