According to the prestigious medical journal The Lancet and Global Burden of Disease, back pain is the single leading cause of disability worldwide. Much of these conditions build up slowing over time either symptomatically or asymptomatically under the surface. It is one of the most common reasons for missed work and the second most common reason for visits to the doctor’s office – outnumbered only by upper respiratory infections.
Most cases of back pain a mechanical and non-organic – meaning they are not caused by conditions such as inflammatory arthritis, infection, fracture or cancer.
