In a recent study, approximately one-fourth of all Americans reported having lower back pain at least once within the last three months. The sooner you pay attention to the state of your back, the more you can do to lessen or ward off back, neck, or shoulder pain. To get you back on your feet, chiropractor Dr. Steven Shoshany shared the easy ways you can protect your back before it’s too late.
