Back & Spine

Is back pain holding you back?

Lower back pain affects as many as 80 percent of adults over their life span. Many choose to ignore the pain, which often leads to constant discomfort or more significant health problems. You don’t have to live in pain. There are many different treatment options available, some surgical and some not, but they will get you on the path to a pain-free life. If you are finding that you have severe pain or it happens frequently, you should talk to your doctor.
