The majority of back pain is preventable
This statement is at odds with the standard medical narrative for back pain. So much of western medicine focuses on treating injury and illness reactively- that is treating a problem symptomatically. But this relies on the logic that a problem need occur in the first place- why have we accepted this hook, line and sinker? A more logical way of treating pain is to prevent it in the first place. And while many types of back pain, the kinds that result from traumatic injury, genetic predisposition, or tumors, are unavoidable, the vast majority of back pain is preventable.
