Mid Back Pain Treatment

With over 80% of Americans suffering from back pain in their lifetime, and over $60 billion dollars spent on medical costs and lost productivity, back pain is the leading cause of disability in those between the ages of 19 and 45. Many factors contribute to the frequency and severity of back pain, including:

  • Physical demands from work-related activities
  • Decreased physical activity level
  • Prolonged sitting (at a desk, in a car, on the couch)
  • Failure to receive periodic spinal checkups and preventative care
  • Failure to seek immediate care following injury
  • Inadequate treatment for back injuries (i.e. using pain medications without proper rehabilitation of tissues)
  • Poor postural habits and improper lifting techniques
