There are two very common health care issues in Rochester, NY that affect people all over the country. Back pain and obesity. The statistics are staggering, There are 93 million people in America considered obese, which costs 147 BILLION dollars a year to treat. With obesity comes back pain. The increased weight on our joints causes disc degeneration, arthritis, disc bulges, and generalized low back pain. As a chiropractor I preach lifestyle changes that can help your low back pain in the present, but also prevent it from occurring in the future. Movement, diet, exercise, and chiropractic care can, and will help you.
