Many of those suffering from the often debilitating condition already know first-hand that traditional treatments -- costly surgery, steroid injections and prescription medicines -- can result in complications and negative side effects. And with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reporting that nearly 80 percent of Americans will experience such pain at some point in their lives, chiropractic care is increasingly viewed by health experts as a potentially safer alternative.
