Can meditation help with chronic pain?

What are the symptoms of a herniated disc?

Herniated discs, which are also sometimes referred to as slipped discs, occur when a crack develops in one of the discs in the spine. Every spine has vertebrae, which are held together by discs that essentially act as shock absorbers. People become more prone to herniated discs as they get older, but they can also occur by repetitive motions placed on the spine over time, such as performing a certain task at a job site for years on end. 

Are people followed by workers' comp investigators?

After you file a workers' comp claim, there is a lot you have to contend with; one example is workers' comp investigators. ABC News detailed the various tasks these investigators have to perform, which includes seeing if workers are truly as injured as they claim to be. Businesses and insurance companies rely on these professionals to make sure they provide money to those who deserve it. 

Should you try to work through pain?

Does yoga really help a bad back?
