How Cold Weather Can Cause Serious Back Pain

We all know that doing things like falling on our backs or trying to lift something that’s even a few pounds beyond the limits of our strength can result in debilitating muscle strains or disc damage that can put us out of commission for weeks, even months at a time. However, there are also scenarios that can have an equally devastating effect on our backs that are not as commonly known.
