Millions of Americans and thousands of people right in our communities are dealing with chronic back pain. Whether it' from an accident, working hard on the job, or merely aging, too many people live with pain 24/7.

Doctors at Essentia want to make life more comfortable for those suffering and will discuss treatment options on Tuesday, Oct. 24 from 5-6 p.m. at its South University Clinic. Team members ranging from a physician, chiropractor and physical therapists will talk about how to keep a healthy back and how to best help your back heal if you experience pain.

Dr. David Bradley with pain medicine, Chiropractor Dr. Allen Hager and Physical Therapists Ashley Gunkelman and Shauna Garrahy will present and answer your questions.

For years, bed rest and opioids have been used to treat back pain. As medicine evolves, it is clear there are more effective ways to reduce pain and more quickly return to living a full life.

Join us for this free event and learn how the team at Essentia Health always has your back.
