Lower back pain is so common in America that nearly 80% of the entire population will experience some form of back pain at some point in their life. Those that have suffered from back pain will know that it can negatively affect many aspects of their life when it comes to their work, family life, and recreational activities. The good news is that most adults with back pain don’t need to get imaging like x-rays or MRI when this back pain is present.
