For many of us, gone are the days where we can clean the house, go for a walk, play with the kids, play with our pets, and, if we’re being honest, simply go to sleep without putting ourselves at risk for neck or low back pain.

Not too long ago, a friend of mine was over to help me out with one of my weekend projects.
He had been out with his family for some celebration – I don’t remember exactly what for – and the first thing he did was go into the bathroom to change.
Not 30 seconds later as I was getting some things together in the next room, I heard what I can only describe as a “yelp” come from the bathroom.(more…)
