Trash or Treasure: Product Reviews of Trendy Internet Products

Trash or Treasure: Product Reviews of Trendy Internet Products Our patients often ask us about products that we all see on the internet. So, we bought some of these new toys to see if they can help our patients with health issues and pain.

We’re going over three different products that are pitched all the time on Facebook to see if they really hold up to what they say they’re going to do. Now just for the record, to make sure that everyone is very clear, I was not paid anything. These are not promotional items. I paid for these from my own dollars so that I can give you a real review...

Stay Hydrated to Reduce Back Pain

Staying hydrated is so important. We know, everyone says it, and we understand if you tune out right now, because staying hydrated is something that everyone tells you to do. Your doctor tells you to do it, your dentist probably tells you to do it, your trainer tells you to do it, everybody tells you to do it. We all try to do it, we just maybe sometimes fall short. But why is it so important? Why do we continue to harp on the hydration issue? How do back pain and hydration go together? You may have heard somewhere along the line that we are made up of a lot of water. By mass, we mean that the human body is over 50% water.
