    Back pain can be very debilitating. The cause of back pain can vary from a large accident to simply bending down. Because it is so easy to hurt your back, that is why so many people are affected by back pain each year. In fact, back pain is the number one reason that Americans miss work each year, and over half of the working class have back pain each year.

Because of the extreme commonality of back pain, the solution to it has become more prominent in the past couple of years. Because back pain can be caused by so many different things, it is hard to self-diagnose your back pain. The problem with this is if you diagnose yourself wrong and do exercises associated with that diagnosis, you could be doing the wrong exercises. And those exercises could be making your back pain even worse.

This is why it is best to visit your chiropractor so they can see what will work best for you personally. It is amazing how much one appointment can accomplish, and how much pain can be relieved.

Because back pain is a reoccurring problem, it can be dangerous if treated by painkillers. With the opioid epidemic growing bigger, it can be risky to use painkillers for back pain because they are so addictive. And because it is a reoccurring problem, it is very easy to become addicted if you are prescribed them. Don’t let yourself be apart of those in the statistics suffering from back pain, visit a chiropractor today to live back pain-free.
