About 85 percent of the population will experience disabling low back pain at least once during their lives! That's almost all of us. The problem is so bad that at any one time, according to one researcher, 6.8% of the U.S. adult population is suffering from an episode of back pain lasting more than two weeks! That's a lot of bad backs. The estimated cost of this problem in the U.S. is over $50 billion a year. Chiropractors have helped millions of people with low back problems, often saving them from pain, disability, drugs and surgery.
The chiropractor's purpose is to make your spine and its nerves, discs and muscles healthier, stronger and more stable by correcting your vertebral subluxations. Anyone suffering from a back problem should see a chiropractor to make sure there are no subluxations and to have them removed and corrected if found. This may make the difference between a life of ease, health and comfort or a life of pain, disease and disability.
