    After I hurt my back several years ago, it was like my life stopped. Things that were once simple became difficult. I was forced to think about every move I made, and asked myself is this going to make my back hurt worse? I couldn’t even walk upright. It used to take me probably a full minute just to stand up to be able to walk out of a restaurant. It was almost embarrassing. The worst part of my back pain wasn’t actually my discomfort. It was not being able to spend quality time with my love ones. I was very limited to what activities I could participate in with my family. Before my back…

    I’m no stranger to strategy. So you have to believe me when I tell you that I tried everything to beat my upper back pain: dozens of shots, two surgeries on my neck and an artificial disc. It’s made two of my favorite things — working at ESPN and playing golf — battles that I felt like I was losing every day. I’m sure decades of coaching college football and, more recently, the long days on set, in addition to the plane rides to the station’s Connecticut studio, hardly helped my pain. Likewise for the years of noon tee times and pro-am golf tournaments I’ve played in — but…

I also know that sometimes, your back just begins to ache for no apparent reason. That’s what happened to me, but Laser Spine Institute helped me find relief from my back pain. For a while, I dealt with the pain and muscled through it because I thought it would go away on its own. But over time, my back pain gradually worsened to the point that I felt like I couldn’t do anything without experiencing what felt like a strike of lightning running through my body. Not…

When I started having back pain at the age of 18, I never imagined that it would allow me to better identify with my fans. I understand how chronic neck or back pain can drastically derail your life. And if it wasn’t for Laser Spine Institute, there’s a good chance I would be retired and unable to golf today.   My back pain began shortly after I joined the Ladies Professional Golf Association. The pain got so bad in 2009 that I couldn’t complete the last of my events. In fact, I pulled out of the…

Besides the usual torn muscle or bone fracture, many Canadian adults can do serious damage to their backs: developing a bulging or herniated disc.

    Jack Armstrong
    16 Jan 2015 | 8:25 pm
    The knee is one of the largest and most complex joints in your body. It’s comprised of bones, cartilage, ligaments and tendons. Two major bones meet to form the joint: the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone). The fibula is located alongside the tibia on the back of the knee, and a fourth small bone, the patella or kneecap, rests on the front to help protect the joint. In between the femur and tibia are two wedge-shaped sections of tough, rubbery cartilage, the menisci, which act as shock absorbers. Four rope-like ligaments hold the bones together and stabilize the knee. Tendons…

  • Knee Pain Going Down Stairs

    Jack Armstrong
    12 Jan 2015 | 8:12 pm
    When you experience knee pain when going down stairs, it often is a sign of an issue with your knee cap (patella) and it’s ability to move around.  Your knee cap is a relatively small bone but it is placed under extreme pressure during every day activities.  To be able to withstand these forces, the knee cap is lined with a thick layer of cartilage on the back. When you are going down stairs, the force exerted on your knee cap is often 4x as much as your body weight.  By comparison, regular walking might apply a force of half your weight.  Anything that interferes with how your knee…
