Dear Fellow Back Pain Sufferer's - This new web-site is
being set-up as an alternative to the many other sites out there,
whose restrictions and moderation limitations, too greatly stifle
the open exchange of valuable information between us fellow back
pain sufferer's. Having visited numerous back pain sites, it has
become clear to me that there is a great need for a web-site that
is free of advertising banners, etc. This site is completely non-profit
and has been set-up to give back to the many people who have helped
me in my on-going struggle to resume a normal life - free of debilitating
back pain. I hope you will enjoy this "oasis" on the web and that
it will teach you as much as I have learned about living a full,
happy life as you search for the answers to the questions you have
about your own back pain.
Peace - Rick J.
