What Causes Backache? – Strength Magazine – November, 1926

Backache is a form of muscular rheumatism that usually affects the muscles, tendons and their attachments. It is perhaps the most common and painful of all the many different forms of rheumatism. It is found most frequently among those who can least afford to entertain it and take due and proper care of it. It is a known fact that working men and housewives, who have to do much of their own work, are most frequently the victims of backache, and the therapy of backache may belong to the domain of the nerve specialist, the surgeon, the gynecologist or the genito-urinologist.
