Cassel M.D. Dr. M.M. Keithahn M.D. Low back pain by Nancy DiCristina, PHN There are numerous causes of back pain ranging from mechanical, herniated discs, and injury to infection and tumor. The majority of low back pain problems are due to mechanical factors and it is this pain that is second only to the common cold in accounting for lost work time for those 45 years and younger. Your back is made up of multiple small bones called vertebrae. They make up the backbone which serves as the main source of support allowing us to stand upright. Between each vertebrae are discs which act as shock absorbers prevent each of the bony vertebra from rubbing against each other. Running through the vertebral column from the base of the brain to the tailbone is the spinal cord. The spinal cord is a package of nerve fibers which extend out from the spinal cord through side openings in the vertebrae to various parts of the body allowing us to move and feel. Pressure on these nerves and/or strained muscles along this vertebral column causes back pain to occur. Mechanical back pain arises from strained muscles or ligaments along the vertebral column. It can arise from work or movements which requires lifting, twisting bending, or reaching. Using improper body mechanics multiplies the risk as does excessive weight, poor posture, or lack of physical fitness. Here are some tips for using good body SENTINEL & TRIBUNE Walnut Grove - Westbrook, MN - Wednesday, April 10, 1991 Illl ,d . p ~.

In a letter to Vickerman, Adrian Mayer, Economic Development Director for Windom, pointed out that the partial closmg of the Windom Post Office could cost the community $1.25 million. "The post office thinks that their savings of $245,000 offsets the loss of $1.25 million for the City of Windom," said Vickerman. "I disagree.
