Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) September 14, 2004
Sixty-five million Americans with lower-back pain spent $27 billion last year on a variety of cures, including back surgery, drugs, back classes, and miscellaneous devices, often with minimal or short-term results. But the latest knowledge on the subject shows how those suffering from problems in the lower back can avoid wasting their time and money while finding legitimate relief from their pain.
The AskTheLowBackGuru.com newsletter, written by renowned lower-back expert Dr. Robert Bourne, helps back pain sufferers separate fact from commonly-believed fiction, and it is free of charge.
Lower-back pain has become the second most common reason for doctor visits, behind the common cold. ÂThis ailment is rampant in this country and canÂt be treated effectively here because of 10 myths that most physicians, chiropractors, physical therapists, and patients cling to like a life preserver,Â says Bourne. ÂThese beliefs are creating a major obstacle to relieving lower-back pain.
ÂBecause I suffered from a herniated disk and chronic lower-back pain, I devoted myself to researching every aspect of this complex subject so I could avoid going under the surgeonÂs knife. I healed my own pain without drugs or surgery,Â he explains.
BourneÂs free, monthly newsletter is devoted to helping people heal their backs. In it, he addresses the 10 myths he claims most experts and patients believe about correcting lower-back pain. By going through the worldÂs top medical journals, he and his staff also pull together all the latest articles and case studies about the lower back for the newsletter, explaining the bottom line in simple terms.
