Low Back Pain?
Asking your chiropractor to focus only on your back is a lot like asking NASA to limit their focus to the moon, but here are some sad, but true statistics about low back pain.
- At any given moment, about 31 million Americans suffer with low back pain.
- Low back pain is the leading cause of disability worldwide – 2010 Global Burden of Disease
- It is estimated that 80% of Americans will experience back problems in their lifetime.
To sum up these statistics up. You are could currently be experiencing back pain like 31 million Americans or you will experience low back pain in the future just as 80% of Americans will, which has a high probability of causing financial distress and potentially disability.
