Low back pain

Low Back Pain; How Do We Address it?

Low back pain is a long standing, common condition causing chronic pain and disability for millions of Americans.  In fact, 12% of Americans have “activity limiting” back pain at any time, and 23% within each month!  Back pain is the #1 reason people seek complementary and alternative medicine in the U.S. and when broken down, several sources indicate that the healthcare costs associated with low back pain in the U.S. are 3x greater than the costs of all forms of cancers combined!  The World Health Organization (WHO) reported that low back pain has a greater impact on global health than malaria, diabetes, or lung cancer.
