Do you like to move? Turns out most people do! However, back pain is a common issue, in fact, it’s the leading cause of disability affecting 540 million people worldwide, for which quick fixes pop up in online searches. Of the 200 videos on back pain in our YouTube search alone, only 50% followed guidelines for clinically trained professionals. So, what source to trust and where to turn when you have back pain? Should you get an image? Should you see a specialist? Should you take medication? Not necessarily. Michael Braccio, Crossover chiropractor, joins Dan to dispel common ideas about back pain and explains the importance of getting your information vetted by a healthcare provider without cycling through unnecessary appointments. Everyone has a spine, and pain is an expected issue for which science-based diagnosis and treatment, manual adjustments, strengthening exercises, and prevention are just a few of the options to consider. Steer your spine in the right direction when you want to be pain-free, faster.
