Have you ever had any aches or pains in your lower back? If so, you are not alone! Low back pain is a very common complaint, including among the Veteran population. An important strategy to care for low back pain includes finding ways to move the body, though that can sometimes feel challenging when you’re in pain. Some Veterans have found relief from low back pain by practicing different complementary and integrative health (CIH) techniques, such as acupuncture, yoga, Tai Chi and massage therapy. [From VA News]
