Who is Sergio Cortes?
Dr. Sergio Cortes is an orthopedic surgeon in the country of Brazil.

He later on worked for over 16 years as a doctor at the National Municipal Miguel Couto in the same city (INTO) as unsurprisingly, a hip surgeon.
He worked at INTO until he was nominated as the Minister of Health for Dilma Rouseff, the 36th president of Brazil. Today, he is well known from his papers, where he discusses various different topics in the medical field. From improving one’s diet to the benefits of caffeine, he uses his knowledge of the human body and his expertise of treatments to suggest alternatives to the way people live. He has especially been in the business of treating chronic back pain in people.
Chronic Back Pain And Its Treatment
There are many different exercises that Dr. Cortes suggests to target back pain. He says that due to the fact that we live in a modern world, we deal with back pain as a result. Back pain can be triggered by bad posture while using our technology, and herniated discs are becoming a common thing for people practicing these posture errors. However, there can be a relief from this pain, as Cortes explains, and that there are specific stretches and exercises that you can use to target this back pain. Without using any type of exercise, he says, it wouldn’t be long before you led a pain filled life.
The exercises he suggests however, may surprise many. He advises that many experiencing this back pain can go swimming to relieve this pain. Swimming is a very good tactic for therapy, and is even used for animals such as race horses for their rehabilitation after injury. Swimming puts the pressure off the body, as the swimmer’s body is being supported by the water, rather than their tired or achy bodies. Many will experience relief very quickly, and swimming can also help strengthen your upper body and even help strengthen your back, building up your muscles so that your back can handle the pressure of walking or other exercises. Dr. Cortes is a well known doctor in the country of Brazil, and thanks to his efforts in the medical field, has been able to help many and may continue for a long time to come.
