Musculoskeletal disorders affect more than one out of every two adults in the United States, and nearly three out of four age 65 and over, costing $980.1 billion in 2014—the equivalent to over $1.2 trillion today.[1] Low back pain, the most common musculoskeletal disorder, affects 8 out of 10 of us and impacts our ability to complete daily tasks, work, exercise and sleep.[2] With our aging population, low back pain and associated costs are becoming a greater burden every year.

Join us for an engaging, highly interactive webinar as we discuss low back pain causes and symptoms, how low back pain is diagnosed and treated, and steps you can take to protect your lower back and improve pain.
