How Common is Back Pain?
You are not alone. Here are a few statistics about back pain in the US today:
- Over 72 million Americans will suffer from back pain during their lifetime. That is 8 out of 10 in the United States. —Vertosmed.com
- Out of those with mild symptoms, 5% will develop chronic pain if left untreated. –Pain News Network
- 4 out of 10 employees that sit at a desk will suffer from back pain at some time. --NIH
Usually, back pain builds gradually until the pain is noticed and impacts the enjoyment of your day. Here is a quote that sums up the problem facing many today:
"When back pain suddenly shows up, we are tempted to blame it on the last minor stressor that affected it, such as a soft bed in a hotel. This is like blaming your bankruptcy on the last latte you bought before your account finally went into the red.”—Todd Hargrove.
After reading the quote, you may be nodding your head in agreement. Most suffering from long-term back pain admit to ignoring the initial discomfort.

The McKenzie Method® at The Therapy Network
You may ask, "What is the McKenzie Method®, and how do I learn about it?" The method is non-invasive and focuses on the need of each patient. Often, the technique helps where other physical therapy methods have not.
Here is a quote from a TTN therapist that specializes in the McKenzie Method®:
"Specializing in the treatment of spinal patients at our Chesapeake office, I received my Certification in McKenzie Method® of Diagnosis and Therapy in 1999 and have been using it to treat spinal cases ever since. I utilize this method because it is patient-driven and exercise-based, backed by research, and incredibly effective. Many of my referrals come from physicians whose patients tried traditional physical therapy (sans-McKenzie) and failed to see improvement.”—Elaine Comer PT
The McKenzie Method® for back pain includes a tailored routine of exercises and stretches that patients can do at home. It is an active therapy method that is cost-effective. Once you learn the technique and the best steps for your diagnosis, you can self-manage the process.
