Back Pain Facts & Statistics
Back pain affect more that 80% of Americans at one point or another within their lifetime, and it is generally reoccurring. Whereas some back pains can usually go away on their own, more than half of the people that experience them will continue to do so for prolonged periods of time, which can extend for over several months, or even years. This can affect a person’s daily life and activities to the point of nearly bringing them to a complete stop.
Common Causes of Back Pain
Whether it’s upper or lower back pain that you are experiencing, it can be caused by a number of different things. A sedentary lifestyle or job can be a common reason for experiencing back pain, although an active manual labor job can be a major contributor, as well. Perhaps if you are active in sports or other outdoor activities such as skiing, climbing or biking, you may have had a crash or fall that resulted in back pain.
