Tips to help ease the pain in your neck, back, hands, knee, and feet

Everyone will probably agree that suffering from severe pain in various parts of our body is a major dilemma. This usually gives a feeling of discomfort especially when we’re unaware of its cause. Today renowned medical experts, Dr. Willie Ong and his loving wife Dr. Liza Ramoso-Ong will discuss with you the most common causes of various pains in the body and how to treat them.

According to the good doctors, the common parts that are usually susceptible to pain are the — back, neck, shoulders, knees, hands, and feet.  These areas are basically made out of joints that are formed where bones come together. When bones become injured or fractured, the condition can contribute to severe body pain, poor posture and inability to walk or stand properly.
