Thank You Grand Rounds 6.24 - Pain and Suffering Edition

Thank You Health Business Blog for hosting Grand Rounds 6.24, "Pain and Suffering" edition and including my article Doctors Don't Prescribe Effective Back and Neck Pain Therapy - Exercise among the votes for best medical writing of the week.

David Williams, co-founder of MedPharma Partners LLC, who writes the Health Business blog, wrote, "Got back pain? Exercise is the only thing that seems to work. From the Fitness Fixer."
Not all exercise fixes pain. Many exercises cause lower back pain, even those commonly used in rehab and PT programs. Prescribing random exercise is not effective. Click Doctors Don't Prescribe Effective Back and Neck Pain Therapy - Exercise to see how to understand and change this.

On the web, Grand Rounds is a collection of the best on-line medical posts from the past week. A different host works hard each week to find and list the articles. This is different from the Grand Rounds in a hospital, which is a lecture for doctors about a patient or topic. Thank you David William, this week's host, for doing the hard work of collecting and featuring our articles.
