How To Reduce Future Back Pain Treatment Costs

It should be obvious that early physical therapy for low back pain can reduce costs for future treatments, but now there is a study to prove it. The findings, published in the scientific journal BMC Services Research shows that early and guideline adherent physical therapy following an initial episode of low back pain resulted in substantially lower costs and reduced use of health care resources over a 2-year period.
