Why is treating back pain so darned expensive? My back hurts and by the time I've seen everyone who claims to help me, I'll be broke.

Dealing with chronic pain can be an expensive endeavor. If you must keep an eye on what the costs are, speak with your doctor about what options you have. If he or she feels that physiotherapy is an option for you, perhaps you can do some investigating to see where the physio is available at a cost that is more reasonable for you. On the other hand, if your doctor gives you a few options, then you may be able to decide which one seems best for you and take the cost into consideration.
