The application of the U-Fx and our self applied videos have been clinically shown to reduce pain, increase mobility, assist in exercise recovery and increase a sense of mental well being. Consider that roughly 80 percent of individuals in the United States have chronic back pain at one point or another.
Chronic pain can be debilitating. Not only does it limit mobility, but pain can have a significant impact on mental health and relationships.
Yet, if interpersonal harms aren’t bad enough, chronic pain comes with a heavy economic burden, leading to an average productivity loss of $802 per person per year. Currently, opioid pain medications are among the most common treatments for chronic back pain. Opioids are not only responsible for $78.5 billion in additional medical expenses each year, but over 183,000 Americans have died in the past 16 years from these prescription painkillers.
