Chiropractic First Surgery Last
Low back pain is the second most cause of seeing a doctor. It also happens to be the second most common cause of disabilities in the US. Some of the causes of back pain injuries include lifting, pulling, or carrying heavy objects, twisting awkwardly, over stretching, sitting in a hunched position, slouching chairs among others.
