This is the time of year for yard work to spiral into a constant task as leaves fall and perennials shut down for the winter. Digging in the yard is a favorite thing for me, but even then, I'm nursing an aching back and sore muscles by the end of the day.
WebMD has a great article I found about managing low back pain (starting with icing the soreness)...for the inevitable aching back at the end of the weekend!
We have some great icing ideas in our For the Back product category for helping with aches and pains in all parts of the back. I hope it helps the work seem a little bit lighter.
