Back and Neck Pain Blogs - Signing Off

Thu, 29 May 2014 18:44:28 +00002014-05-29T18:44:28Z

This is my very last blog post on About.com.  It's the "signing off" post.  Network-wide, About.com is moving onto new ways of providing info to the general public.

But you can still access articles about neck and back pain - that feature is not going away.  For example, if you're considering back surgery, you can learn about your options, be they laminectomy or discectomy (or other.)  Many other medically vetted articles on spine related topics abound, and will continue to abound, here as well.

Support Resources for People with Chronic Neck or Back Pain

Tue, 06 May 2014 15:59:16 +00002014-05-06T15:59:16Z
