I don’t hesitate to say that we live in the best country in the world. We enjoy all the comforts and convenience of modern technology, the best healthcare, access to the best food, the best medical research and the best education. Americans by far, are the most health conscientious people in the world. Our training and recovery methods are some of the most robust.
Some of us may even have memberships to several fitness and training ideologies such as Crossfit, Pilates, Yoga, SoulCycle, Jiu Jitsu and Orange Theory to strike the balance between strength and limber-ness.
But why is it that, with all this knowledge and access to staying healthy and fit, Americans have one of the highest incident rates of low back pain in the world?
