Staying Healthy, In Shape for Pool

You might not consider a pool player an athlete, but many hours bent over, stroking and striking the cue ball, and smashing break shots wide open, requires mental alertness and physical fitness.

Iron Defense Made Easy

Play Pool Safely - Ease Back and Neck Pain As You Play Pool
It’s time to play pool again without neck and back pain. Enjoy the game without, not playing past, the pain. These are the methods I recommend as safe for your body without harming your game skills.

Repetitive Motion Injuries
An area sensitive to the pains and strains of pool becomes repetitive motion syndrome unless the player takes care as recommended.
