Dear Princess Celestia ...

Dear Princess Celestia:

This weekend, I learned some very important things about back pain.

First: don't touch your toes to "work the kinks out", and most especially, if you have trouble touching your toes, DO NOT I say again DO NOT push yourself until you CAN.

IT JUST MAKES THINGS WORSE.

Second: if you're tempted to skip a shower because your back hurts, DON'T GIVE IN. Hot water does everything that touching your toes to "work the kinks out" DIDN'T.

Third: the evidence seems to suggest that using an exercise ball as a part-time office chair causes more problems than it solves.

Your faithful student, Athelind Long
