Back Pain Treatment And Prevention


More than 80 percent of people worldwide experience some form of back or neck pain during their lifetimes. Not only can symptoms be debilitating, but it’s also costly, with millions of Americans reporting lost work due to back pain.

A new ViewFinder episode from KVIE examines the spine and the role pain plays in the body. Through interviews with Northern Californians experiencing pain through injury, poor posture, arthritis and disc degeneration, “Oh My Aching Back!” allows viewers to witness individual patients’ journeys from pain to recovery.

Today on Insight, we’ll learn about back pain treatment and prevention from Dr. David Copenhaver. We’ll also talk with the producer of the program, Karen Christian, about why ViewFinder decided to turn its lens on back pain.
