Is Spooning Really The Best Position For Men With Back Pain?

A study using motion capture technology provides new information on the spinal strain produced by various sexual positions. The study found that the spooning position produced the greatest strain on the male partner's spine if they were flexion-intolerant. That's of special interest, because the spooning position has commonly been recommended for all patients with low back pain. To learn more about the study and the full recommendations, please read the article for free for a limited time.
