Low Back Pain – Not Again!

April 5, 2014 in Our News & Bulletins by Integrity Rehab

Same year recurrence of low back pain has been measured as high as 44%. Many people don’t realize that the pain going away does not mean that the problem went away. If treated passively, back pain comes and goes. If treated actively, people are empowered with the knowledge and activities that put them in charge of their own health and ability. That’s the way we like it.
