Mayor Gavin Newsom could be found listing heavily to port today due to having a little back trouble. How did it happen this time? He thinks it all began a couple weeks ago when he helped his fiance, Women’s Independent Cinema founder Jennifer Siebel move some stuff around.
He gradually managed to right himself over the period of a news conference and he remained chipper throughout. Perhaps he knows that 90% of all back problems take care of themselves over a few weeks or months.
Old ideas about needing bed rest have gone by the wayside – anti-inflammatories (plus lots of water to make things easier on your liver and kidneys) are usually all you need. Drs. Jimmy Connors and Jim Kelly wouldn’t steer you wrong.
