Low back pain is one of the most prevalent medical disorders in the US. It is the leading cause of disability and contributes to over $100 billion in US economic costs each year. It was previously believed that delaying treatment would allow for spontaneous recovery, but emerging research shows that this is simply not the case.
New evidence supports that physical therapy can improve pain-levels and reduce costs, especially when treatment is initiated early within the care process. In fact, research shows that early initiation and adherence to physical therapy for treating low back pain is associated with a lower utilization of imaging, opioids, injections, and surgery and a 60% reduction in overall healthcare costs. Additionally, think of all the time saved by avoiding all the unnecessary medical appointments!
