Lower Back Pain

According to the World Health Organization, the lifetime prevalence of non-specific (common) low back pain is estimated at 60% to 70% in industrialized countries. The lumbar spine (low back) is a structure of interconnecting bones, joints, nerves, ligaments, and muscles all working together to provide strength, support and flexibility. The low back also provides mobility for everyday motions such as bend and twisting. Most acute (<3 months) low back pain results from injury to the muscles, ligaments, joints, or discs.
