One thought on “Effects of alcohol on low back pain?

  1. Great information. I’ve always felt as though drinking can effect the muscular neurons, creating a less-than-optimal connection between brain and muscles in the back, leaving room for overcompensation of other muscles, leading potentially to injury. Thanks for sharing.
