But from there, there’s not much advice. We’re just expected to get over it, as the cost for daring to bring a child into the world in the first place. Or at least, this is how it can seem. But worry no longer, in this post we’ll discuss how

It provides support for the body, aids in walking, and even assists with simple acts such as sitting up in bed, which is why it is critical that we take good care of our spines.
