Nearly 80% of Americans will suffer at least one bout of moderate-to-severe low back pain at some point in their life. This number could drop significantly with a few simple steps:
- Consistently train your core muscles of the back and abdomen.
- Maintain a healthy, normal weight for your height and body type.
- Stretch daily and get regular chiropractic adjustments.
Following these three steps is a sure way to significantly lessen your odds of being laid up due to a low back injury. Marcum Chiropractic’s Dr. Todd J.
