Modern spine issues are seen in epidemic proportions in chiropractic, medical doctor, pain management, and physical therapy offices every day. Looking down at handheld devices is taking a grave toll on the spine health of adults and children. Historically, looking down was done primarily for reading, but reading was generally a small portion of the day in conjunction with many other types of body movements within the day.
Arthritis is one of the most common health issues in America at a rate of over 50 million people. That is over 20% of the entire population who suffers from chronic pain. It is estimated that if the current trends continue, because of the aging population, almost 80% of Americans will have some form of arthritis by 2040.
