Back Pain (VIDEO)
Set out on a voyage of discovery into one of the miracles of nature: your back. Dynamic, multilayered views of the spine and the hundreds of muscles that support it reveal the hidden architecture of your vertebrae and discs. Go deep inside the spine to see exactly what happens when a disc herniates or spinal stenosis, spinal osteoarthritis, and other disorders develop. Noted back experts Dr. Norman Marcus of NYU, Dr. Mark Liponis of Canyon Ranch, and many others talk about what causes most back pain and the difference between chronic and acute pain. See therapists in action using both standard and alternative treatments, from physical and thermal therapy to acupuncture and massage.
