Evolution explains why so many humans have back problems: we evolved to walk on four legs, and relatively recently we began walking on two legs. However, natural selection hasn't changed the "design." Isn't that understanding important for an orthopedist?

If my orthopedist told my my back pain was the result of my walking on two instead of four I would write them a referral to see a psychiatrist!

When I last looked I had two legs and two arms - both designed to do completely different functions.

'Evolutionary design' is an oxymoron!
