They say 8 out of 10 Americans will experience low back pain at some point in their life and if you are 1 of those 8 you know all too well that low back pain can be debilitating. Low back pain is the number one cause of disability worldwide! It is also interesting that lower back problems tend to be more common in women than men and the majority of low back pain cases reported are from people that spend most of their time working at a desk. They also say $50 billion a year is spent on symptom treatment for low back pain and the cost in lost work is somewhere around $100 billion. Back pain without a doubt is a big financial burden not only to those who suffer but to society in general.
