Oh! My Aching Back


I was having a problem with my lower back aching after a long trail hike so I went to my family physician to seek a solution to the problem.


I told my doctor that my back hurt after taking a five-mile hike with a thirty-pound pack on my back. I asked, “What’s the problem?”


The doctor immediately responded, “There are three problems:


Number one, your pack is too heavy,

Number two, you are walking too far,

Number three, you are crazy for doing that.


I’m going to prescribe some medication. Take these pills for two weeks, and after two weeks you will not want to do that any longer.”
