According to the American Chiropractic Association, approximately 31 million Americans experience low-back pain at any given time. On top of that, Americans spend at least $50 billion a year to treat back pain. If you or someone in your family is dealing with this kind of pain, you may think that it’s such a common problem that it may not even be worth treating. However, at OMT Specialists, we believe that holistic manual physical therapy is the answer to any injury you face or discomfort you may feel. After all, you’re a person, not a statistic—and your physical therapy treatment should reflect that.
