|Pain Info 4 My Back - Introduction
Information about back pain - including origins, causes, treatment, symptoms, and conditions.
Issues to be covered:
Back-pain sufferers in America cost this country more than $100 billion annually in medical bills, disability and lost productivity at work. And 80 percent of Americans will battle back pain at some point in their lives, making it the number two reason for doctor visits, after coughs and other respiratory infections, Newsweek reports.
- The most popular nonsurgical back therapy, chiropractic, is expanding, with over 60,000 chiropractors practicing today, a 50 percent increase since 1990.
- Massage has seen an increasing number of back patients, too, and research shows it does help knead out persistent pain; one study even found that patients required less medication during treatment.
- Acupuncture is also popular and now even conventional doctors say if it makes you feel better, go for it.
Acupuncture, which seems to stimulate the release of feel-good endorphins, may not provide instant relief, but will most probably have a cumulative effect.
