Genesis, Treatment and Prevention of Back Pain

Nwuga, V.C.B. (1985-10-22)


When I was thinking about what topic to pick for my inaugural lecture I had no problem picking the present one on back pain. In many quarters my name has become synonymous with back pain and its treatment. In fact one of the congratulatory letters I got after my chair was announced said: "Mr. Back Pain; so you made it to the top despite your problem". Many of you here today who have suffered but have been 'cured' under my torturing hands can confirm this.
