Back pain affects eight out of 10 Americans at some point in their lives, and it is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. for people under the age of 45. Americans spend $50 billion a year in search of relief for their back pain, according to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke.
Because of the vast number of individuals with back pain there are a lot of health providers and companies offering solutions. The shear range and number of treatment options is staggering.
Why are their so many options for handling back pain? Why does it seem like everyone has a different solution that is THE solution?
Simply put, it is because of the complexity of the back. Your body translates power from your lower body to your upper body and vice versa through your core. The central skeletal structure for your core is your spine. So what can cause back pain? We have tracked the source of people’s back pain to their spine, their shoulders, their neck, their calf muscle, their foot, their knee, their hip etc…. Back pain has hundreds and hundreds of causes thus there are so many approaches to handling it.
