The fast-paced lifestyles of today have taken their toll on the backs of America. Currently, back pain is the number one cause of disability in those aged 19-45 and is the second leading cause of missed work days. Total annual costs for back pain in the US alone are estimated to be in excess of $60 billion.
A number of factors contributing to these statistics, including:
overall increases in work demands
overall decreases in physical activity
increases in prolonged sitting (at the desk, in the car, in front of the television)
lack of periodic spinal checkups and preventative care
failure to seek immediate care following injury
poor postural habits and lifting techniques
Our treatments primarily focus on the cause of your problems, which not only results in rapid and effective pain-relief, but most importantly, minimizes the chance of future back problems.
