WHAT IS ASFB?
The current evidence shows that after an initial episode of lower back pain and treatment, the chance of having a recurrent episode is greater than 60%! The reason for this high recurrence is that the stabilizing structures atrophy very soon after an episode of lower back pain, and need 4-6 weeks or more to adapt and return to their original state. Most insurance companies don’t provide the treating professional medical services adequate sessions for this critical adaptation component to succeed.
