About 80 percent of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their life. Most people who have had a consult with their MD or even orthopedic show no spinal abnormalities on an X-ray yet suffer excruciating pain. The reality is that while these doctors are trained in Medicine and Surgery, they know very little when it comes to Biomechanics and musculoskeletal health.
Even when the pain is in the lower back, the problem tends to be with the entire spine. Chiropractors employ manipulation, posture and mechanical analysis and nutrition— all small adjustment of the body— to help align a patient's spine.
People who come in only when they're in pain are missing the bigger picture. We need to think of our spine the way we do our teeth, using preventive care to stay healthy.
