Eight out of 10 people will be affected by back pain at some point during their lives, making it the No. 1 cause of disability worldwide and resulting in as much as $200 billion in lost wages and productivity. Many sufferers struggle for years to find relief, but treatment options often only provide short-term relief or, in the case of pain medication, carry serious side effects, including drowsiness, liver damage and potential for addiction. Now, thanks to Hocoma, a leader in the development of robotic and sensor-based medical devices for functional movement therapy, consumers have a new way to improve and sustain low back health in the comfort of their own home.

These are all things we can accomplish with a little determination and planning. http://youtu.be/9eMrmVMuAa0
