Back & Neck Pain

Meaningful Relief from Back and Neck Pain with Leading-edge Care

Back pain and neck pain are among the most common and disabling health problems. A whopping 80% of American adults experience back pain sometime during their lives.

Back pain is one of the most costly ailments in our society. The cost of treating back problems, time lost from work, insurance, therapy, and surgery exceeds $50 billion annually. At any given time, lower back pain alone affects an estimated 31 million Americans. As many as half of all Americans report some type of back pain in a given year. Spine pain is also the number one reason for employee absenteeism and workers’ compensation claims.
