If you have low back pain you are not alone. Over 80% of people will experience low back pain during their lifetime. More than 50 billion dollars are spent every year treating low back pain.
WebMD describes low back pain treatment as using “ice pack, aspirin or another NSAID to reduce pain and inflammation. If back pain keeps you from normal daily activities, your doctor can help by recommending or prescribing pain medications. If your primary doctor isn't able to help you control back pain, he or she may refer you to a back specialist or a pain specialist. Sometimes these doctors will use injections of steroids or anesthetics to help control the pain”. Clearly traditional medicine focuses on reducing pain and not fixing the underlying problem. Remember that Aspirin and NSAIDs have been associated with gastrointestinal toxicity, bleeding ulcers, heart attacks, and kidney damage.
