Learn WHAT you can do to better manage and prevent them.
2 BIG mistakes people make when it comes to Lower Back Pain & Sciatica.
Discover 3 simple exercises that can PREVENT Lower Back Pain & Sciatica .

People who attend these workshops want to find ways to safely and effectively manage these problems without the need to rely on constantly popping pills to get through the day.
