Back pain is a common complaint that can affect anyone of any age, race, or gender. It’s the primary cause of disability worldwide and one of the leading reasons for missed work. In fact, chronic or acute back pain is responsible for more than 264 million lost work days annually in the United States.
When it comes to treating back pain, however, it can be easier to prescribe a pain pill than identify and address the source of your pain.
