The Cen­ters for Dis­ease Con­trol and Preven­tion say that roughly 30 per­cent of the pop­u­la­tion com­plains of chronic back pain in a given year.

Lower back pain is a prob­lem that plagues mil­lions of peo­ple and can lead to lost hours of work, poor qual­ity of life and re­duced mo­bil­ity.

In fact, ac­cord­ing to Global Bur­den of Dis­ease 2010, low back pain is the sin­gle lead­ing cause of dis­abil­ity world­wide. Peo­ple spend around $50 bil­lion each year on back pain treat­ments.

One so­lu­tion to back pain is to con­sult with a chi­ro­prac­tor. The Amer­i­can Chi­ro­prac­tic As­so­ci­a­tion says chi­ro­prac­tic spinal ma­nip­u­la­tion is a safe and ef­fec­tive pain treat­ment. It also can help re­turn mo­bil­ity and flex­i­bil­ity to the back.

With ad­dic­tion to pain med­i­ca­tions such a preva­lent prob­lem in both the United States and Canada, chi­ro­prac­tic care may be a good first step to al­le­vi­ate pain and dis­com­fort in the back.
