Get Back to Basics with The Joint Chiropractic Care
During the course of a normal day many of us experience back pain. Be it chronic or occasional, persistent or fleeting, there's an 80% chance that during the course of your life you will suffer from some type of back pain. In fact, the reality is that Americans spend nearly $90 billion annually treating their back pain and it is second only to general check-ups as the most recurrent reason for visiting a health care provider. The $90 billion dollar spend may not seem all that important to you at first, but this number warrants a closer look, for the expenditure is nearly that which is spent on cancer each year.
But if you've suffered from back pain, knowing you're not alone really isn't that comforting, is it? While scientist and medical professionals debate where the actual back pain we experience emanates from —some say our spine, some say the surrounding tissue, while others believe the pain is derived from the nervous system—the pain continues. And upon closer exploration of our daily activities, most of us would probably agree that the way we sit, the shoes we wear and the things we carry all contribute in one way or another to our back pain. So it's no wonder we're motivated to find ways to heal our pain. But what if dealing with back pain had more to do with modifying behaviors and taking proper care of our back, our nervous system, our spine first—a back to basics approach, if you will.
