How many people do you know who haven’t experienced back pain? Medical experts estimate that over 90 percent of all Americans will be plagued with back pain at some point during their lives. And when back pain strikes, it can be debilitating. A twinge today can mean agony tomorrow. An afternoon’s bed rest can turn into six weeks of missed work.
If you’ve ever experienced back pain – and most of us have – you’ll know how debilitating it can be. And if the thought of taking a road trip makes you wince… or stooping to pick up your grandson poses the very real possibility that you mightn’t ever straighten out again… you might think drugs or surgery are the smart option.
Surprise! I’ve got a pop quiz for you today.
