Are You Suffering From the #1 Cause of Worldwide Disability?
Are you suffering from back or neck pain? You're definitely not alone!
A series of studies emerging from a massive collaboration between the #World #Health #Organization, the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, the #University of #Queensland School of Population Health, Harvard School of Public Health, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, and the University of Tokyo, Imperial College London, clarifies the worldwide health burden of musculoskeletal conditions, particularly back and neck pain. Low back pain was identified as the number-one cause of disability worldwide.
The findings emphasize the shift that lower back pain has a tremendous burden of disease compared to a mere 20-30 years ago. In addition, while more people are living longer, the flip side is that they do so with an increasing risk of living with the burden of pain, disability and disease compared to generations past.
When it comes to #preventing and treating #musculoskeletal issues, particularly #back #pain, manual care such as #chiropractic #care, #acupuncture, and #massage #therapy have been shown in numerous research studies to be an #effective conservative option.
Are you suffering from back pain? Are you looking for solutions to help treat the source of the problem? Are you looking for a better quality of life?
