Each year over 50% of American adults will develop a musculoskeletal injury that lasts longer than three months. Three months is a long time to suffer, especially when the pain is really not necessary. Furthermore, pain left unattended will commonly cause other problems. Going without physical therapy is simply not a good idea.
Only 10% of people who experiencing musculoskeletal injuries receive care for their injury. That means there are millions of people just suffering through their days. Taking acetaminophen and ibuprofen oftentimes becomes a way of life. Decreasing physical activities is also common.
At some point in their lives, 80% of Americans will experience back pain. In case you are one of the few who have not experienced it, we can tell you first and second-hand that back pain can be debilitating. Myths and fiction are common when it comes to causes and remedies for back pain.
Traditional pathways for seeking out and obtaining physical therapy are part of the problem. Especially in recent years, people just don't want to go out of their way for treatment. Scheduling is hard. Traffic is maddening. Costs of visits are rising. Unless things change, it seems the trend is in the wrong direction.
