Nearly half of all American workers admit to having back pain at any given time. Back pain is a major cause of lost work productivity, disability, and can decrease a person’s motivation for performing just about any activity. Low Back pain can consume a person and it is one of the leading reasons why people visit the Benchmark Medical Group.
Low back pain can be complicated by many factors, including, but not limited to, weakness of musculature, disc herniation, bone spurs and arthritis and can also have origins in non-spinal tissues, such as the kidneys. Back pain is a major burden on the health care costs in the country and nearly $50 billion is spent yearly.
