It's a sad fact: You have back pain and you also have housework to do, children to take care of, and errands to run.
When you can't find someone else to do a chore for you, keep in mind these important rules:
Making the bed
Using the phone
Driving the car
In the bathroom
Washing dishes or ironing
Picking up children
Unloading the groceries
