In this episode of Back Talking!, Dr Todd Wegerski discusses the “current state” of back pain in the US and world today. We look at startling statistics related to the occurrence rates and costs associated with treating back pain.
- Did you know that 80% of people will suffer from back pain at some point in their life, and that over half of those people will have a recurrence every year?
- Did you know that we spend over a $100 billion dollars a year treating back pain in the US, and the problem is only getting worse?
The discussion focuses on what has caused us to have the situation that we face today. Problems such as medical mismanagement, the obesity epidemic, lack of exercise, and the modern lifestyle has led us down the path of the back pain epidemic.
