Many low back pain sufferers jump from one treatment to another and never get relief.
They will try chiropractic, massage, physio, acupuncture, etc. And yet continue to suffer.
In the past 2 years I’ve had the privilege of teaching a “Low Back Recovery” class at the University of Victoria. I never cease to be amazed at how many people needlessly suffer from lower back pain.
