The quality of life is something that every person desires. The highest degree of healthiness is the essence of the quality of life, for whenever an individual is healthy, he or she can work, be involved in recreation, and carry on general daily activities without the experience of pain due to some form of physical ailment. Regrettably, millions of people experience some sort of physical disability resulting in pain.
Back pain is a major cause of certain disabilities and it is a very common characteristic that people suffer from. Back pain is indiscriminate and can inflict anyone of any age. Young and old alike experience the agonizing fact of having back troubles some time in their life. At times the pain is minor and too often it is excruciating and unbearable.

Incredibly, Americans spend a staggering $50 billion a year endeavoring to get their back pain treated!
Injury to the back has many different causes. Automobile accidents, powered bath lift engaging in sporting activities, slips and falls, occupational injuries, and freak accidents that occur in the home can lead to back trauma. This pain can range from the minor to this serious.
Everyone grows older and with the advancement of age comes a degeneration of the spinal column. This normal degeneration is a result of the loss of height in the disc space between the vertebrae. On average, this happens when ever someone reaches the age of 30 and beyond. People also tend to be less active and not exercise as much once they age. The combination of decreased muscle tone combined with less activity and aging of the disc, sets one up one to be prone to back pain. The spine is a carefully balanced column of vertebrae held in place by muscles.
People that suffer from back pain find it extremely difficult to take a bath. The unnatural curvature and hard surface in a bathtub puts immense stress and pressure on in all ready to diseased spine. This pressure, over time, can cause spinal stenosis which is a debilitating disease in which the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerves which results in agonizing pain and limits mobility.
