recent study from Europe indicates the rates of back and neck pain
continue to soar and exist as a worldwide problem for all societies.
According to their findings from studying 600 males aged 35 to 70 years
old, the one-year prevalence of back
and neck pain was as follows: 17 percent for mid-back pain, 64 percent
for neck pain and 67 percent for lower back pain. In terms of
severity of pain, the most severe and disabling tended to be those
suffering from bouts of lower back pain followed by mid-back pain and
neck pain. Fortunately, your local chiropractor is willing, able and
professionally trained to help!
