Well, it looks like your Mom was right after all when she told you to stand up straight and stop slouching.
About eight out of every 10 people will experience a back or neck problem at some point in their lives. Approximately 90% will recover spontaneously. Unfortunately, once you have experienced a problem, recurrence is common.
Almost all neck and back pain result from poor posture, so remember Mom’s advice. Don’t become another back-pain statistic.
