Heart failure, a major public health problem, is a constellation of signs and symptoms originating from structural and functional abnormalities of the heart. It leads to a generalized maladaptive chronic inflammatory stress reaction in the body.

Is It Just Back Pain Or Something More?

At this very moment, it is estimated that nearly 31 million Americans are experiencing back pain of some kind. Whether it’s stiffness after a bad night’s sleep, or pulling a muscle after weekend activities, you’ve likely dealt with the annoyance of back pain at some point.
