Up to 85% of Americans will experience back pain at some point in their lives, and 20 percent are suffering at any given time.
There is no other ailment that impacts this many collective individuals. Back pain has become the number one reason for job disability, the number two reason for visits to the doctor, and the number three reason for hospitalization.
It also affects social, emotional, and mental health.
In his book, The Back Pain Relief Diet, Dr. Todd Sinett explains that doctors aren’t succeeding in diagnosing and treating back pain because they aren’t targeting all the sources of back pain. And, there’s a big one they’re overlooking: our diet.
Listen as Dr. Sinett joins Dr. Friedman to discuss his research behind the book, as well as how gut inflammation has a significant influence on back pain.
