Eighty-five to ninety percent of people in the United States will suffer from back pain at some time during their lives. Back pain is the second most common reason people visit their family doctors (just after upper respiratory infections). On any given day, almost two percent of the entire United States work force is disabled by back pain. In people under 40 years of age, back pain is the most common reason for the inability to perform daily tasks. It also is the direct cause of enormous health care expenses from $20 billion to $30 billion annually.
Pain that primarily affects the back should be distinguished from a spinal condition that results in mostly leg pain, a condition commonly called sciatica. Typically, sciatica is the result of a “pinched nerve” in the spinal column. In most cases, the cause of the sciatica is clearly defined; for example, a disc problem or arthritis. The cause of an episode of back pain, on the other hand, often is more difficult to pinpoint, and may be related to the discs, joints, or soft tissue supports (muscles, ligaments and tendons).
