Costing roughly $100 billion a year, spine medicine -- often ineffective and sometimes harmful -- exemplifies the worst aspects of the U.S. health care system.
In her book, Crooked: Outwitting the Back Pain Industry and Getting on the Road to Recovery, Cathryn Jakobson Ramin (who herself suffered with debilitating back trouble for years) shatters assumptions about surgery, chiropractic methods, physical therapy, spinal injections and painkillers, and addresses evidence-based rehabilitation options. The book shows, in detail, how to avoid therapeutic dead ends, while saving money, time, and considerable anguish.
Cathryn joins host Lisa Davis to reveal what it takes to outwit the back pain industry and get on the road to recovery.
