Wednesday, September 25, 1974 (ARK.) StAft Dr.Lamb Learn cause of bad back By Lawrence E. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB -. J know back problems are the subject of great controversy and hate to admit to having one, but it's there and I don^ know how to handle it. In dates back to three years ago when 1 was changing a lire. Something snapped, and I couldn't stand up. I panicked, and the pain was something that defies description. Someone helped me back home where I whimpered and shuddered, trying to figure out what happened. After a few days it got better, and I more or less ignored it. There have been several episodes since, triggered by dumb things like bending over to tie my shoe laces. It seems like every time I have another "attack" the getting better process takes longer. I'm never without pain, and every day is a "let's see - how - it's - going - to - be today" situation. My normal routine has been greatly curtailed. I went to an orthopedic surgeon (highly recommended). He reached around and hit the sore spot. When I yelled he chuckled and said it's a degenerative disk with low back sprain (he had already looked at the X ray). He gave me a cortisone injection and sent me to his physical therapist who went through exercises. I've done them, more or less, regularly, and the condition is definitely worse. An hour on my feet is about all I can take. Two and a half sends me home to booze, which is the only thing that relieves the pain. If this was your back what would you do with the darn thing? DEAR READER - You have lots of company among my readers, I'm sure. The first and most important thing to do about a bad back is to find out the cause. Some are muscular spasms and can be relieved with WIN AT BRIDGE good exercise programs. Some of these are caused by underlying problems putting an unusual strain on the muscles along the spine. One example is the short leg problem. If you have a short leg, it tilts the pelvis, this causes the spine to shift like a crooked stack of dominoes. Even the shoulders change position and finally the head sits to one side or the other. Although the immediate muscular spasm can be relieved by injections and various techniques, it will return unless the underlying problem is corrected. You can have the same problem with sitting if one side of your pelvis is smaller than the other. Bad beds and bad chairs, usually the too- soft variety, can also put a strain on weak back muscles. When a disc is the problem you can sometimes get results with conservative management, and your doctor has taken this approach. Since you state it has not worked you need to see the orthopedic surgeon again. He needs to know this. It might be important in deciding if you need an operation. If it were my back I would go back to the orthopedic surgeon and let him know that I still needed help. There is a lesson in this for all people. If your doctor starts you on a program and you don't get results, don't go doctor shopping immediately. He may have needed this information to decide what is the best treatment for you. Go back and give him a chance to use this information to help you. Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Drm Lamb's booklet on losing weight, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Losing Weight" booklet. Good play can save argument NORTH 4 AJ982 VK32 Q54 25 .

"What's wrong with picking up 800 points above the line? "When you made that silly jump to four hearts it never occurred to me that you held an ace, king, jack and a useless queen. I thought you had some concept of correct bidding," replied South. The argument may still be going on for all we know. We see merit on both sides. Certainly North should have bid three, not four, hearts and certainly South should have doubled five diamonds, but neither partner noticed that South should have made his doubled contract. He started out by putting dummy's ace of spades on West's king. Then he finessed the queen of clubs successfully; cashed his ace of clubs; ruffed a third club and played the king of hearts. We won't go into the merit of South playing the king of hearts earlier. That didn't matter,,Wha,t, did,matter is that" when East showed out on the first heart, South conceded down one. He didn't have to. He should have played all the high trumps and led clubs. If West didn't ruff South could throw him in with the last trump. Whenever West gained the lead he would have to play spades. He could cash his queen then he would have to lead to dummy's jack of spades which would have become good. If he trumped the fourth club South would have a trump remaining to get back to his hand to cash his fifth club. (NKWSPAl'ER ENTERPRISE ASSN.)
