The holiday season can be a very busy and stressful time of year for many reasons. On top of this, we are often performing activities that we might not otherwise be performing during the year. So if you are anything like Elf Zach, you may be dealing with some back pain this holiday season. It may be from dragging that tree or lights out from underneath the stairs or lifting some heavy presents under the tree, but Apex is here to help no matter what the cause.
