Controlling My Back Pain Naturally

My father and mother both suffered from chronic back pain for the last two decades of their life. Despite assuming the problem came from their physically demanding careers, I ended up inheriting the same problem as I reached my 40s. I was afraid that my days of biking and hiking were over.

Now I get to enjoy all my favorite hobbies with less pain and a better range of motion.
