Most of us know that back pain is a common health issue, and many of us experience back pain ourselves. Do you know how widespread back pain really is for Americans?

  • Thirty-one million Americans experience low back pain at any given time!
  • One-half of all working Americans admit to having back pain symptoms each year.
  • Back pain is one of the most common reasons for missed work.  In fact, back pain is the second most common reason for visits to the doctor's office, outnumbered only by upper-respiratory infections.
  • Most cases of back pain are mechanical or non-organic-meaning they are not caused by serious conditions, such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer.
  • Americans spend at least $50 billion each year on back pain-and that's just for the more easily identified costs.
  • Experts estimate that as many as 80% of the population will experience a back problem at some time in our lives.

As you can see, back pain is a serious problem. Fortunately, chiropractic is extremely beneficial in preventing and relieving these aches and pains.

Testimonials

Besides making my neck and back feel better, my legs that normally bounce all over the place at night have been much calmer since doing consistent adjustments with Dr. Pete and adding the occasional massage in before or after an adjustment. I love the atmosphere in the office and the staff are pretty dang amazing too. Debi is great to help with insurance stuff.

I'm a big guy.  My neck and shoulder were killing me.I went to see Dr. Pete.  He fixed me up.I know from experience that most chiropractors don't have the strength to give me a full adjustment.  Dr. Pete got me straightened out right away.  Nice office.

Thanks,

I have known Dr. Pete for several years now. He is a caring and wonderful Chiropractor. When I go for my visits he is warm welcoming and his new front office person Joy is a delight and so helpful. My last series of chiropractic adjustments were amazing. Just with my first adjustment I walked out felling better. If you are thinking about Chiropractic...Think Dr. Pete Chiropractic.
