Back Pain and Sciatica
Millions of Americans are adversely impacted by back pain each year. Studies show that, at one point or another, approximately 80% of the U.S. population will be affected.
While there are a lot of treatment options available, many of these only address the symptoms and don’t target the actual cause of the pain or how to handle it in the long term.
The three main causes of low back pain and sciatica are
- Herniated Discs
- Pelvis issues
