Did You Know?
Lower back pain is one of the most agonizing and common health conditions in the world, as well as a leading cause of disability. According to the American Chiropractic Association, 1 in 4 adults will experience lower back pain for at least one day during a three-month timespan.
Treating Lower Back Pain
Although lower back pain is common and usually goes away on its own, there are a number of treatments you can take to prevent or relieve your pain.
Until recently, one of the most recommended treatments was the use of pharmaceuticals such as opioids and steroids.
