New York has a lot of 'everyday' athletes. It’s a state where various sports, ranging from basketball, football, boxing, mixed martial arts, tennis and golf are so big that millions of people participate in them everyday to stay fit. However, it doesn’t matter if you’re a professional player, a serious fitness buff, or an ordinary gym guy or gal, injuries – particularly to the lower back area – will find their way to ruin your game if you aren’t careful.
