Do You Suffer From Back Pain?

If so, you’re not alone. Studies show that about 80% of adults in Tulsa will experience significant back pain in their lifetime and over 40% in any given year.


The back is an incredibly complex system of bones, muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues that support your entire body. Without this support system, you wouldn’t be able to sit, stand, or even walk, let alone do many of the things that make life enjoyable and meaningful.

Spine Health

Many of us fail to consider the health of our spine until it is too late, and pain becomes a part of daily life. However, by taking care of your spine you can relieve back pain or even avoid it altogether, and life can be about living, not about managing pain!


If you have back pain, start by taking a full inventory of your symptoms. Back pain can stem from many differently causes. Narrow down your symptoms to what kind of pain you feel and where.
