La Palma, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2008
Relief from back and neck pain has arrived with the opening of the newest Relax The Back 24/7 ergonomic lifestyle specialty store! The Bloomfield Hills Relax The Back is located in Bloomfield Plaza, on the Southwest corner of Maple and Telegraph. Gabe Hertz and Bill Wahl, franchise owners, join the growing network of more than 120 stores in North America. This is the second in the Detroit-area (http://www.relaxtheback.com).
Hertz remarks: "We offer attractive, posture-correcting furniture and products with the individualized attention of expert back care consultants," he said. "We are excited to join the community while improving the health and wellness of the clients we serve."
Repetitive stress, poor posture, non-supportive mattresses and furniture, long commutes and badly designed office furniture add to the American back pain epidemic. Consider these alarming statistics from the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research, U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Government Guidelines:
- 80% of Americans will suffer from a significant episode of back pain at one point in their lives
- Among working age people in the US, 50% admit to back symptoms each year
- Back pain is the most common cause for disability in persons under age 45
- At any given time, one percent of the population is chronically disabled and another one percent is temporarily disabled due to back problems
- Back and neck pain is the #1 modern day epidemic that is non-life threatening
The Bloomfield Hills Relax The Back offers a solution to the back pain epidemic by carrying the largest assortment of supportive and stress-relieving products available, including over 40 exclusive items. Among these items are Lifeform office chairs, Tempur-Pedic mattress systems and pillows, lumbar supports for the car, Zero-Gravity massage chairs and recliners, bed wedge systems, travel supports and bags, (including AirPack backpacks for school), fitness products, inversion tables and even "Green" products.
