Back pain is a serious problem for Americans. By some estimates, as many as 80% of adults in the United States suffer from back pain. In today’s world there are virtually limitless causes of strain and stress to our backs. We’re not nearly as active as our ancestors were, even a hundred years ago but particularly in primitive times when sitting was not the main event of the day. Nowadays whether we’re at our jobs, our homes, or in our cars, everywhere we go we sit. This is extraordinarily bad for the back and can cause chronic pain over time.
