Dr Stuart McGill is a professor emeritus at the University of Waterloo and a world expert in back pain.
Dr McGill has worked with some of the best athletes in the world across pretty much every sport you can imagine as a spinal specialist, so if anyone can give us some advice about how to cope with back pain, it's him.
On today's episode expect to learn why backs are so problematic, how much of back pain is due to lifestyle choices or training methodology, how much of an impact desk work is having on our spinal health and why recovery from a back injury can be so slow and hard to define.
