Back pain rules Gasquet out of Monte Carlo | Sprains and Strains and Arthritis | Scoop.it
Tenth-ranked Richard Gasquet has pulled out of the Monte Carlo Masters after failing to shake off a back injury.
William Payne's insight:

Tennis because of the twisting and hyperextension of the back  injuries can occur from poor flexibility. Additionally, lack of core strength, bad or improper tennis mechanics are additional factors. Be sure to have a physician provide a comprehensive examination of your back.

Choose if possible an orthopaedic surgeon or neurologist who has completed a spine fellowship which is specialized training in spine examination and treatment.
