WEDNESDAY, JUNE 32, 1900 XLTOW EV1N1NO TSLEOflAPM YouVe the Doctor By Joseph D. Wassersng, M. D, COMM09 BACKACHES She was a tiny woman, 4 feet. 10 inches, and when she came in complaining of her backache, she had already been studied at the fiigbrain Clinic. She had complained of pain in her low back which radiated down both tegs. Her doctors at the clinic sus* • pected a ruptured disc so, in the four days that she was hospitalized, they had taken spine X-rays, myelograms, and had even examined the sptoal fluid. All of the testa proved negative and she was advised to stay home, take certain ex* etcises. and have physiotherapy. Apparently, however, most of the examinations were made in bed so the doctors may have failed to realize just how tiny our patient was. Even though she wore three-inch spiked heels, her legs failed to touch the floor as she sat in the chair next to my desk. "What kind of work do you do?" I asked. "I'm a secretary and typist," she replied. "Are your desk and chair standard office-size?" "Yes, and I can't find n comfortable place for my legs at all during the day." So I suggested to the patient that she get a footstool to use at her desk v'-hile at work. Her pains disappeared. I cite the above case only to make a point. Not all of us can have custom-made furniture but, since most of our furniture is designed for persons of average height and weight, those individuals who vary significantly beyond the averages may suffer considerably by trying to adjust themselves to existing equipment rather than modifying the facilities in which they work and live into objects that are useful and convenient to them. We can't design people to fit chairs but we can design chairs to fit people. In a sense, all of us actually .iuggle a flexible pole (the spine) on a tall bridge (pelvis and both legs). To be free of backache, the flexible pole must be nicely balanced and must not be subjected to unusual strains or pulls from below. To determine the various causes of backache, therefore, one must first look to the legs that constitute the foundation on which the back rests. Flat Feet a Cause Let us consider feet first. Persons who are flatfopted, for example, are inclined to have backaches. If they happen to be stout at the same time, the backaches are worse. Flat feet often toe outward and this unusual stance is transmitted to the back. If one leg is shorter than the other, from polio or from any other cause, it will create a tilt in the pelvte and place unusual strain* on the back. The woman who does her housework walking around the house all day in slippers or in sneakers often complains bitterly at night of an aching back. The sneakers or slippers have failed to give the arches of her feet proper support and, almost like the flatfooted person, at the end of the day she may find herself waddling around like a duck. And It leads fo backache. Obesity works In somewhat the same direction. The tat person places unusual strains on his underpinnings and this strain, in turn, Is transmitted to the spine. The fat person not only damages his arches but his knees and hips as well. These abnormal strains can be. endured for many years but, ultimately, the back begins to suffer. Like obesity pregnancy, too. is a strain on the back muscles. The proper use of corsets and girdles during this time may help ward off backache later in life. Tall Person SusceptaWe So far we have said nothing about the back itself. Here, again, size has something to do with it. The tail person, for example, has no more bones in his back than tbe average-sized individual but, when the tall person leans forward, he exerts a greater lev-, (M-age on his back so that he places his back at a greater mechanical disadvantage. The tall person, therefore, may be particularly prone to backache and should learn that, for him, it may be hazardous to lean over too far. In many ways, the modern automobile has contributed to increasing the number of backache victims. Aside from injuries caused by accidents the automobile, even when not in motion, is conducive to chronic back strain. Seats are designed, nowadays, for apparent comfort. When you sit behind the wheel of a modern car, you feel as if you are relaxing in the plushiest of plush chairs. The back rest tilts back at an angle more suitable for sleeping than for driving. It may feel nice for the moment but, in the long run, the back is inadequately .supported. Travelers, like salesmen who have to drive long distances or make many calls during the day. are certain to be left with a backache when the day is done. Since the design of the seats is obviously one of the factors that sells automobiles, no one will complain except your patient. If you are suffering from backache, therefore, it is well to check a few simple things before you get involved with Upper Alton News Events BOY nwtutt wmuB WADDVO fit CHKBK Donny Hayw, 8, son of Mr. and Mrs. Aft Hay«8, 3M* Seminary, wa§ given emergency treatment at Alton Memorial Hospital Tuesday night lor a toot injury ttJcnrrtrt while wading M a creek near his home.
